Okay, quilty stuff:
I'm participating in the spring fling round robin, as noted earlier. I received a center to add the first border to, a couple of weeks ago, and I'm sorta stumped! It's a lovely center, but I'm just having a hard time getting "spring" out of this dark mariner's compass... so I'm taking a vote. I have three possibilities for your consideration. (I should mention that I'm thinking about a border on just two sides, with the compass ending up at the top-right corner.) The first one is sort of a sweet but not to sweet floral. I think it goes great, color-wise, but I think of this as more summer than spring.Next up is an Asian print -- again, the colors are okay, but I think this one gets lost next to the compass.
Finally, something quite different. And -- here's the full story. I was whining to Al last night about this dilemma; he didn't like either of my first two choices. He said "let's look at your fabric". I said "I don't know if I know you well enough to let you see my fabric!". (19 years is all...) He went in and rummaged around in the shelf with yellows, and dug this out from the bottom of the heap. Hmmm. What do you think?
And in other news... I finished my orange socks! The camera seems to want to make them fluorescent -- they're really not. The second one went amazingly fast. I think my next pair are going to be Jaywalkers; I just need to decide what yarn is coming out of the stash to make them.
