While in the process of designing some custom placemats, that are to coordinate with a specific set of dinnerware, catastrophe struck! The fabric was chosen from a print-out of the dinnerware found on the web. Not a good idea! When confronted with an actual dinner plate, the colours chosen were very wrong. By this time, the fabric had been purchased, pre shrunk and the piecing had been done. All was set for the hand applique to commence. C'est tragique! But the fabric did look quite beautiful drying in the warm sun!
