Urban Grunge

Declyn has a flimsy!
"Urban Grunge"
As it turned out it wasn't as bad to piece as I had thought,
well that was once I started piecing from the bottom and not the top.
Guess it pays to read the instructions :-s

I am was still undecided if I am was piecing the back or if he is was getting a cushion.
Most likely a pieced back.  Then late last night I started playing and he
ended up with a pieced back  :)
I am rather pleased with it considering it was just 5 random left over pieces
 sewn together (the edges), sliced, flipped and sewn to the centre panel.
Yes a total coincidence that I had corners to match up.
I don't like my chances of that ever happening again!
Now it is off to be hung in the Walk in Robe until after Christmas as I
still have some Christmas Shopping to do so no spare funds for the batting just yet.
Declyn is also playing with an idea for something in the centre above.
I will let you know what he decides, when he decides.
Plans for today? Sewing something for me.
Hugs, Sharon
