Doing it the hard way

For the first time since - I think- some time in 2006, it was warm enough on Sunday to be outiside. I took the opportunity to park the design board on the patio.Of course, as always seem to be the case, there was not quite enough of the dark brown fabric to do the backing so I chose a second fabric from the stash to add to it. Now, the sensible thing would have been just to add a stripe of the new between two wider strips of the old. Quick simple and easy. But do I ever take the easy way out......?
I also took advanatage of the sun to try out sun printing. I quite like this button one but this leaf one is less successful.
