I've sorted into color groupings my squares from Lisa Shepard Stewart's African batik assortment bought yesterday. She sells online through http://www.culturedexpressions.com/.
Now I've created my color grid layout. My intention is to make a book cover/padfolio - inspired by the one Karen has recently completed.
Now I'm this far along. Grid is stitched together. I'm debating zig-zagging in black along all the stitch lines, however in testing this out my machine is complaining loudly!! I'll have to have a think about this!!
(I have to say - I've become incredibly self-concious over every word I write after reading Stephen King's "On Writing". He lists some pet peeves of his in grammar and descriptions - now I'm over-sensitive to how I write!!)
