I have started the second garden sampler.
I also tried one of the Fabric Pin Dishes. I wanted the black fabric to be on the exterior but the instructions had the batting stitched to the pink interior fabric. It didn't lie well that way.
The fabric was a couple of random fat quarters from my stash. I bought them a couple of years ago at WalMart. I was shocked to note how much they cost there now with our Canadian dollar so low.
I'm going to frog the 'Brickless' shawl that I've been knitting with my handspun and knit it with larger needles (4.5mm) for better drape.
