I also need an opinion on this piece. It is weighing me down. I charted out some motifs from the ballroom rug in the Governor's Palace in Colonial Williamsburg. Somehow I slightly miscalculated so the ribbon that joins the motifs doesn't fit. I'm also tired of the cross-stitch and colours and I now hate the light blue linen I purchased for the ground fabric - this was going to be a pillow by the way. But I love the center motif. So I'm considering cutting things up for crazy quilting. What do you think?
By the way, this is the other ornament for the class. This is actually the shape we are using in class but not the chart. I used the blank chart on the web site to take another chart and adapt it to this shape - again just to show the group how it could be done.
Finally, another Tokens & Trifles project. I've just written an article about this one (and other tins like it). I call it a Mini-Memory Tin. It is an Altoids tin decorated up - in this case as a vacation memory with pink sand and shells inside. I'm really pleased with the top design.
Off to attend the wedding I fixed the dress up for. I'm hoping West Virginia is cooler than Virginia or I will be a puddle of sweat at the end of things!
