And that is just what I did in the mornings at Seaside, Oregon...by the window watching the tide come in and go out. This is what it is going to look like with the indentations filled.
Now my "Inner Allie" just kept pushing me along... and of course she a simple binding will just never do... so I gathered some more trims to use along the bound edge... I must admit that my quilts have improved immensely with her as my inspiration and inner voice.
Now a little history on that roll of trim... In 2002 we were in New Zealand and someone told me about a sari fabric store in Auckland that had good prices on trims. I bought quite a lot of lovely trims, all of which I used years ago. But I never could find the right spot for this and I had a whole roll because it was a close-out price and I was beginning to think I was going to have to be buried with it ...and as you can see it is perfect here.... only had to wait fourteen years...
This sampler I did the year we were married was the inspiration for this project. My original plan had been to add this phrase and our names and the year of our marriage with tiny petit point cross stitch to the piece... With my vision problems that is now an impossibility so I had to come up with another plan.
