This Loon Vase Mat is getting the final bead embellishments; then all layers will be sewn together and bound with colorful bias tape: the top quilt sandwich with polyester organza, waterproof nylon, heavyweight Pellon interfacing and duck cloth backing.  Ready to top a table or decorate a wall.

Building Collage Inventory

While getting breakfasts and lunches ready to go, there is also time for some work with the brayer and a handmade foam stamp using Jane Davila's method.  These will go into the machine-sewn card-making stash.
