Working hard on my projects that have a deadline of October. I have four. This one is going nicely. I am struck by the beauty of the palette, which is not one that I have ever worked with before. I really wanted to feature the lovely embroidery so the colors I chose to frame it with are very delicate.
I am very happy with it, and I have the frame almost completed.
I moved most of my sewing stuff to the basement. In my particular mytopia way, I spent considerable time organizing my pre-cuts instead of attacking the giant pile of boxes full of fabric. I spent a happy hour carefully bundling these:
Whenever I am between projects and I am not sure what I will do next, I cut squares in various sizes. When I start a new project, I can pull out the colors that I need. Or I might use them for leader-ender projects, I used some hem tape to bundle them. I found one more group of squares today. I needed a piece of something to bind it so I pulled out the box of trims that belonged to my aunt Lou.
I found this:
This piece of hem tape was exactly the size I needed, neatly wrapped around a card and pinned so it wouldn’t get lost. I wondered why my aunt kept it because I can’t think of another use for a piece this short but I was glad she did because it worked perfectly.
