I was thinking baby blanket when I started making this project using the Prairie Paisley collection from Moda. I used off-white flannel for the backing and didn't use any batting. But then when I was working on it, I decided that it would make a nice table topper or table mat, especially on a small wicker table. It is 24 inches square. It was so dark and cloudy this morning that I had to use flash to get the picture, so I'm going to wait until I can take pictures in natural light to list it on Etsy.
Darcy, this one is your fault! I went outside this morning even though it was raining very lightly to take a picture of the flowers on this weird plant that came back up in my garden this year. It is huge and ugly, but I decided to give it the benefit of doubt until it bloomed. Well, this morning it has a couple of rather small yellow blooms. I took a picture but they were out of focus. On my way to the end of the flower bed, I saw this spider, so I decided to see what I could do with him. I forgot to turn off the flash so he was rather washed out. So I decided to play around with saturation and contrast and color to see what I could come up with. The detail is still washed out, but I like it.
We got rain about 3:00 this morning, and another shower just now. Glad I went out and moved some plants last night even though it was hot and I missed the first part of my favorite show.
I need to get my desk cleaned off and get my bag packed. I'm off to the city for a couple of days. Later!
