I got my chores done (kitchen, vacuuming, mopping, laundry, recycling, blah) and rewarded myself with a quick trip to HOPE, which will always be ACCAG to me. Lovely seaglass necklace, Pampered Chef apple peeler-slicer-spiralizer thing, Y peeler, and a CorningWare P type handle all for $7 and tax. A&W for a late lunch, then Happy Valley for cider donuts! Yay!
I made myself take Rt 7 through New Haven both there and back to put the accident behind me for good. I think the sage and fire last weekend really did do it, but a red motorcycle passing me in almost the same spot made my heart race for a second, but then it passed. On the way home, I was already a mile or two beyond the spot before I realized I hadn't even noticed. So, good.
I sewed for about an hour, flipped it over to make sure there weren't any huge pucker-y messes or thread nests and NO! Woot! (as the kids say.)😉
I really like the freehand center. It's appliqued, and a little stiff, I'm going to guess WonderUnder but it might soften a little with washing. It's certainly not something I'd have made, but it's fun to work on.
There only remains a single 6ish inch solid border, then trimming and binding. I will check my stash for something that'll work to bind it, otherwise I'll grab something when I go into town for groceries tomorrow. The colours below aren't quite accurate, at least not on my screen. Gold and crimson and the purple is quite rich - more like aubergine than plum. Everything need a little warm up from the pic. Can't imagine I don't have something though - these are my colours.
But before that I really ought to figure out what's going in that purple space. Hmmm.
