First up on the list was putting together the Oriental french braid. I got the top pieced together pretty easily, then cut out border and the back. I knew when I was cutting the borders that the second one would be tight at best. The fabric is from a kit I bought two years ago while at a retreat in Shipshewana. As you can see, it wasn't enough. I am planning to call the shop this week to see if they still have any of the border fabric, but am also putting out a plea here. I really only need one 6 1/2 x WOF strip, so if any of you have this in your stash and are willing to sell or trade it with me (I have lots and lots of orientals), I would be very grateful!
