Well I was humming right along on my design when disaster struck!! My sewing machine is broken. I was having issues and decided to clean it out, oil etc. When I put everything back together, it didn't fit!! My husband is working on it in his spare time. So I am posting my progress photo.
I had another piece I was working on and trimmed it to size. When I put the scraps on a pile, I noticed that it made a nice little design. I started playing with all the pieces and ended up with this. The brown "fencing" is from my potato bag. I want to add some grasses in the bottom so when my sewing machine is fixed, I will do that, trim to size and add my border.
My inspiration was partly from the scraps and from a recent trip out west.
