12 more scrappy green blocks made. I've decided to pull out a new color each time I pick this up and keep circling around the color wheel until I have enough for a rainbow for my bed.
Backing and batting prepared for the Holiday Baskets table topper–you can see it in this post.
Another last minute holiday decorating idea took me on a thrifting adventure today, looking for interesting frames. The good news is that I found lots of them. Here are some of them lined up at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
The not so good news is that in the art center that Santa Fe is, a lot of them were priced based on the thing that was being frames–too pricey for the project I have in mind.
I came home with four, half-price at the Salvation Army today.
The sweet Christmas cross stitch in the frame on top was a bonus. I thought it deserved a new life in my house at Christmas.
I'm going to start with these four and if it looks like my idea will work, I'll be on the road looking for a few more ...
... and then there was this hat that flew off the rack into my hands. I liked the soft gray color and think it will be a great hat for summer ... after I deconstruct and remake it into something much more casual and more me–another project for the future.
