    This pattern is beautiful, and bigger than it looks. I can’t wait to finish it. The design is just so authentic to the crock ware era. I just love it. Kathy is a wonderful designer with such creative ideas. So glad I ordered it, and I see that there are more patterns with crocks that I will be ordering.
