Let the Adventure begin

OK, it's design wall Monday and here we go... See that little ring there all by it's lonesome?

I got the Inklingo double wedding ring collection and read through it... Not too scary...

So now let's pull and print some fabric and see what happens...

Well, I lost most of Saturday evening picking fabric and getting comfortable with the terminology, but THIS is the result. It is not perfect and took a bit of time, but for my very first effort I am very pleased. I have enough cut out to make a three-ring table runner. No reason to just make more orphan blocks, right?

I have the medium/dark fabrics I bought for Shelby's quilt washed and drying on the rack upstairs. The background and a batik are in the washer (with synthrapol!). I still need more of the background and a more grape-ish purple, but I am on my way!

More Good News...
The shop is soon going to be joining the 21st century. I found out that there is cable high-speed Internet service finally available in Harrington. I told you I lived in the boonies. No more waiting forever for a page to load. I can actually watch a YouTube video and download my audio books without walking over to the library. No, it really doesn't take much to make me happy.

Tell me where to get more wax!
