Instead of a drawstring bag, I decided on the envelope style. The envelope is a deep purple and doesn't show up so well against the slate, but the little "wallet" will hold cards, etc., and will slip easily into my purse...I've been saving thread snippets for a couple of years, always intending to make some "fantasy cloth" with them. Since I've been using Solvey for stabilizer on the tee shirt embroidery and had some odd pieces left, I decided to try the "fantasy cloth" and came up with this: [clickable]
It is a small piece, and I'm not sure what I'll do with it, but I have lots and lots of thread to make more if I choose.
The monarda (bee balm) is blooming. I used to have red, then some white appeared (?), and now I have pink.
All my photos were taken early, so the light isn't very good...
