While I had the design wall up, I decided to put the 4 basket blocks up. I now have a plan for the centre block, which won’t be another basket, and the borders for this. I think I have just enough of the floral print to make it work . I’m going to spend some time this weekend working out exactly how much I need for the borders and the centre block and then take it from there.
The lesson I learned from this was that when I fall in love with a fabric like this one I really do need to buy somewhat more than I think I’ll need, particularly as I had no firm plan in mind when I bought this but rather a vague idea.
It snowed. A lot. All day Wednesday. So much for me thinking spring was getting closer. It seems like a very heavy snow as the tree branches and shrubs out on the roof garden seem to be groaning under the weight of it. Some of the bears decided it was time to get their winter clothes back on. When the picture was taken, there were fairly large snowflakes flying by the window.
I’m not sure if Lester is winking in this shot or just not quite awake.
Smudge was relaxing.
