Plan "B"? If it works, it is the right way!
After going through all the possible marking tools in my collection, (none of them showing among the blue flower print) I decided to quilt the outer border from the back.
It is still a bit hard to mark in an oval hoop but at least I can see the lines once they are drawn.
Rain yesterday. Rain today. Rain predicted for tomorrow. Camp-out postponed. The time I thought would be spent prepping crafts for the camp-out was put to testing my template.
I drew the plan on graph paper and traced it to a thin tracing paper, then cut the strip and laminated it. It was not hard to cut out and is easier to find than just using the clear plastic I can buy at the stationary store.
Take a look at here at Tanya's Blog.
They make my flowers look like a wimpy bunch of wanna-be's.
Next in season will be the sweet olive ... kinmoksei.
I see the tiny buds beginning to form in the twigs and branches. Usually those are not noticed until they burst into bloom, filling the air with perfume.
OK, enough of this!
Back to the second side of the border.
