The weekend got away from me again (don't you hate it when life interferes with your real work? *s*); but I  had a plan. There was something I wanted to try,  an idea I had, and handwork was the key. So making lemonade out of lemons, I got to work.  See, I had purchased these little canvas/easel combos. I wanted the easel, actually (you may have noticed them in my Group of Eight Fibre Artists post); but then what to do with these little 5 x 7 inch canvases afterwards? Making a jump to something seemingly unrelated, during our last hot spell, I did a mess of dyeing (I'll show you some of the results of that another time), but one of the things I dyed was a set of cafe-au-lait linen curtains that had tab tops. These were the tabs, 2 1/4 by 3.5 when sewn up - but looking at them carefully, I saw that they might be usable squares when undone.  So I undone 'em. :)   And they were cool when opened.  So my idea for using those canvasses was hatched.  And the handwork began... and continued... ...added a little colour... and done! They were tiny, after all.   Ta dah!!!! But, ummm, maybe not. I like the little hand-worked piece, but not so much wrapped around the easel. I guess I'll have to come up with another plan.  <sigh> See you Wednesday with a new scheme!
