plans for a fence for the garden. patchwork will be tedious . haven't decided on the way to do it yet. this journal page format will be the new way for me to share ideas, it will be moved to a linked info database along with tips and techniques, but right now i am just too busy to bother with finishing it.
the count needed is 83, i finished 9 so far this week. this blogging site is having problems so i may switch my format. whatever. this cloth is a gift for next year. it is not a surprise. the receiver is following the story of its creation. let's call him "walter" just for reference. he will be visiting soon and i will allow him to interact with this cloth in its middle stage. more about walter later.
i have started the first birdhouse block. the birdhouse is pieced and i have just created a pattern for the bird applique. i will trace this on to fabric ( haven't selected one yet) and maybe paint in some details before applying. i wanted the bird to sort of leave a trail like it was moving into the square. from the edge again. the moon has been given a face and i still have some plans for embellishing the backround. it may need to be dipped in tan dye to tone it down, but i will wait till all the garden blocks are done.
