Three things to be happy about:
(1) padded envelopes
(2) learning a new exercise
Spring is just around the corner, what does Punxsutawney Phil know, anyhow?
I'm in my lazy stage again!
Remember this string quilt that I was puzzling over ... add a border, don't add a border, what kind of border ...
Thanks everyone for your input!
I grabbed some light colored strings - not necessarily neutral, but lighter than darkish medium - and made a few of these ...
... which I cut into these 3-1/2 x 8-1/2" strips, to test as a border.
I tried out a few and I admit I wasn't too impressed at first.
I was thinking if I went that route I'd need to add a narrow inner border to separate the main quilt from the 3" border strips ...
But now, looking at it through the camera's lens from a different angle ... it doesn't look half bad!
Maybe I'll make enough string units to finish up that left side and a few for the top, and see what it looks like.
Decisions, decisions ...
Sew forth and sew on
