Eyes need a new resting place
This pomegranate is in my friends front patio on a tree laden with them. They are beautiful. I can only imagine the juicy red juice inside that would drip out all over my fingers if I cut it open with a sharp knife. And I can almost taste that juice, the acidic tart flavor of redness on my tongue.
But in the name of you know what (sewing/incase you did not know what) I did have a free hour and went to the Q-shop today and got instructions for cutting my backing fabric (remember I am new at this). No time to sandwich them there.
Went instead to Michael's to get Frog Costume stuff for 3 yr old grandchildren's Halloween: lime green t-shirts (size small); lime green visors, big plastic doll eyes with blacks that move inside the white ovals; green, yellow and black felt for frog spots. And Halloween stickers of all sorts because my grandkids LOVE stickers.
Came home tonight after work and sewed the backing pieces together...ironed them. Now they are neatly folded waiting to see if I can do the sandwiching on my queen sized bed (tomorrow morning the plan is to get started).
