The star points are ready for the next step.
Since the needed end result is for a double bed, I am planning to divide the work into segments before assembling.
The plan is to make Hawaiian blocks in a hibiscus design for the four corner blocks, and an altered Hawaiian design for the four triangles.
A while ago, I laid out this star with different fabrics in the corners and sent it off for my granddaughter to look over and think about which of the assorted blues she liked for the main background.
My second challenge is another stool I was able to locate on the top of a dusty closet shelf.
You may notice the legs have pegs inserted into the frame. That should make them a bit more difficult to take apart and fix.
I plan to engage my son-in-law who is very good at solving fix-it problems ... at least with my rotting door frame and leaking roof.
This was the second stool made and the colors seem to be less faded. Probably from lying safely on the dark dusty shelf.
Looking back, I wonder where I found all that time to come up with the two designs and spend stitching with a variety of thread.
I think I just drew the outlines on the canvass with a pen.
With Blogger no longer sending comments to my email inbox, I am sorry if I miss responding to some friends.
I can return to my dashboard, but how far back do I need to check and how do I know which ones I have responded to? Back in the old days, we looked forward to changes, as most often, those changes were improvements and made life simpler. These days I have become more and more frustrated with changes ... the new washing machine with a lint trap that never gets any lint and the cycle that ties everything in one big knot. And Mr. Google who waits until you get everything figured out and them changes everything. What ever happened to that rule ... "If it ain't broke, don't fix it ! " ???
