- We did some stenciling and rubbing with crayons and paint sticks in my art quilt group. Homework is to do something with them.
- I wanted to join in Leah Day's quilt along. (I may be too late but the intention was there!)
- I wanted to explore some ideas on modern quilts for a class at the guild.
- I bought a glass table for my new house and needed an everyday table cover. Putting things straight on to glass makes me nervous!

I save net from flowers. It's fantastic for adding texture to your surface design.
I also used some net to make stencils. I cut out maple leaf shapes on some fusible web, left the paper backing on it and ironed it to the net. Stenciling through the net gave a lovely watery effect to the stencil.
