I spent the day yesterday, glued to the computer. I had banking to do, bills to pay, then I spent lots of time looking at potential patterns to use with the alpaca yarn from our cousins. I also got caught up on laundry, and recuperated from 2 family reunions with too much good food!
Today I found fabric for the borders for my hydrangea project. The narrow border has gold metallic, white and gray squares on black, and the outer border is black with a dark gray swirl. I mitered the corners, and hope it will look like a picture frame when it is completed. I decided to add a layer of thin batting behind the flowers and vase, to add a trapunto area to the wall hanging. Now I have to dig through my thread bins to find as many shades of pink and green for the machine quilting/embellishment.
