finally started the piece that has been pestering me in my head for a number of months. It will be a challenge because I am working on a 5 foot linen table cloth that bows and bends with the wind. May need extra tethers to tame it. And in my haste I started it without my trusty bamboo iron on batting so the billows are billowy. More hand basting necessary. But I'm not too worried, the hand basting may stay in because of the concept.
