Greetings to all...

Here's probably my last "Flattie" project for 2019...I'm pretty sure I saw a similar piece in one of Antoinette's Christmas mantle vignettes...here's the link to her Christmas mantle pages... http://antoinettestockenberg.com/xmas.htm ...there's so much to look at, read and enjoy...

I'll let the pictures below tell the story of how this project started and how it's progressing...a pattern for the parts is below in the second image...updates will follow later...stay tuned...

My very best regards...

Howard...
