I added a 5" border all around with cardinals on a golden background and it really is lovely. Not sure if I plan to do more or just finish it with the same green for binding. It needs to be measured now to see what comes next, if anything more.
The rest of my time was spent making a huge batch of chowmein for several meals, and then cutting up strawberries for a chilled pie. I am also making refrigerator tea...tea bags in water left to brew in the door. Temps have sky-rocketed into the 90's already, so planning ahead is always a wise choice.
Again, the only change that is every really successful to make is in myself. Everything else will do what it will in spite of what I want.
