I've made some progress on a couple of tops. First is the 4-patch stack & whack from a couple of months ago -- it's now totally wild with sashing and border. I think this needs to go to a 12-year-old girl, but I don't know any at the moment so it will go in the closet for a while! I'm involved with two mini-groups; this was a project in one of them, and now the other group wants to do the same thing -- so when we meet in June I'll have more pictures to show you. I've chosen a more traditional floral print to use for the next one. And now for something completely different -- this is the row robin that my online group finished in February. It took me forever to figure out what to use for sashing! I tried out dark brown, medium brown, a combination of tans... but they all looked terrible with the wide range of neutrals in the blocks, so I finally decided I needed to move to a completely different color. I love the way this variegated stripe seems to shimmer but still lets you focus on the blocks.
Now my question is about the outer border. I have this beautiful chocolate "krystal", but *I'm wondering if it's just too dark? Comments, please?
It is a fabulous spring day today, and I should be out cleaning up in the back yard... or doing some work I brought home, or trying to file the mound of paper on my desk. Yawn. Maybe I'll go pick some oranges and lemons and make lemon-orange-ade so that I'll have something to look forward to later in the afternoon when I decide it's okay to just lounge around with a book!
