Appear in gayer coats than I:
Let me be dressed fine as I will,
Flies, worms, and flowers exceed me still.
I've meant to get back at the Backyard Friends Story Book, and I have worked on it a bit. But other priorities call. I did sit down one day and put backs on all the motifs that were finished so far.
If you've ever made a potholder, what I did is similar. But first I ironed interfacing on the back of my stitched pieces. I used cotton quilt batting to give these a bit of body. I just used a fat quarter from the stash to back them. I think one fat quarter is going to be enough for all I have planned. I'll add a large eyelet in the corner so that they can be joined by a ribbon or some sort of jump ring. I want it to be safe, so I'll have to think it over a little.
The grand kids like them already and they've done their share of traveling around the house. I'm currently stitiching a spider in his web.
That's it for today. Hope you are having a great week. See you next time!
