just so you know

 

that i'm not being a slacker and just taking pics of my underwear and
bugs
here is what is also going on. i was invited to make a "window hanger",
a curtain, and in keeping with using what is at hand, i had to get
creative with piecing cloth on cloth to get the correct dimension for
the window. this has led to doing Kantha stitches all along the bottom
and side additions. slow going but i am making progress.

kaite said...

don't you just love the way we all say stuff as tho we live in the same area, and blogs become people's homes, such the short disc'n about the clickety curtain
(and i just love saying "clickety curtain").
Now we're going over to T's place to play.

taking on a life of its own.
