Today was sunny and bright .... but, as is usual with a High system, quite cold (for MD) at 20 degrees (not counting windchill).
I had physical therapy for my new knee in the early afternoon. I enjoy going (although it is a pain to dress and go out - I have the same don't-like-transitions that my son did/does:) ... my knee always feels better afterwards - more limber and steady.
I spent the rest of the afternoon working to finish up the piece I have for this stage of my 'traditional' guild's round robin. We are at the point where the four blocks made previously have to be assembled into something (table runner, wall hanging, etc). After a fair bit of dithering, I decided to put the four I have to work on into a wall hanging.
The four blocks seemed quite busy to me - the prints used are much too similar in visual texture and the result is too-busy-for-my-eyes. I thought the assembly could use some resting space for the eyes. A wide-ish sashing seemed like a good idea ... and some smaller textured tone-on-tone prints in the same color palette. I will say that I was quite a bit shocked at just how different in size the four blocks were - none of them were the same and the variance was more than three quarters of an inch between the largest and smallest. Sigh!
My friend Barbara B. actually suggested the square on point sashing ... which I modified to get what I made. :) I am quite pleased with the results ... sure hope the eventual owner of this piece likes what I've done! :) Tomorrow is my weekly daytime guild meeting (have to trade this rr bundle in for the next round's assignment).
