wow, do I have a handle on the worktable projects?
My work table. Hard to work on it when there is sew much stuff on it. :(
But I got the baskets cut out, well at least the coloured bits. As usual my math is dismal. There are 24 baskets! :( This is really gonna be a challenge for this busy month. So 18 pin dots are not enough. I found a few more and two similar. The other six are gonna be that " but the shortage of fabric just makes the quilt better!" kinda scenario! LOL
I'm actually glad that I didn't cut the background fabric because the original didn't work with the lighter basket handles (1/4 inch finished!!!!) so a flowered white will do even if it doesn't 'exactly' match the white on the multi dots which I hope will be sashing. See above scenario!
We are still experiencing cold April showers so there may be no rush to get May baskets up on the wall:
As with most things, this series of wall hangings is a learning curve. I wish I'd made the outside strips wider so I could trim them for proper width after determining the binding treatment. I think the whole shebang would also block and lay flatter. :O I am also wanting a better hanging method.
I was happy with my raindrops and the soft puckering after washing. I am not so happy with the icy rain and intermittent snow flurries in May though! :(
I fell badly off the budget wagon this month. VBSigh. Some journaling
supplies and I 'm thinking ahead hopefully to a flowery, summer month. But gee,
my orange period is sure lasting a long time. ;-O I can quickly stack
these somewhere but the mixed media is mixing heavily with the sewing
projects on my worktable this month. And if the Tablets for Dummies is
as helpful as I think it'll be, I'll be slipping off the wagon again to
get Dummies for Windows 8 and for PhotoShop Elements next!
