Just enough fabric

I had just enough duvetyne to make the riser masks for my brother. There will be a seam in the middle, but it was the best I could do with the fabric I had on hand. I got the one mask sewn together and the sides folded over and stitched. I will put the hem in first then measure and press for the height of the panel. The panels are not long - one is to finish at 84" and the other 74" - pretty easy to handle. I have made much bigger ones - two panels 20' long and 30" high!
The fussy side of hook and loop tape will go across the top so if the fabric I fold over is uneven, it doesn't matter because the loop tape will cover it up. I had to order a 25 yard roll of 2" wide loop tape from a place in N.J. and it should be here Wednesday.

After work I spent a half hour spraying weeds. The weeds are going crazy! If it doesn't rain today I will have to mow tonight. The front yard looks like a hayfield! While I was killing weeds I saw a couple Shasta daisies opened up. I took this picture as I was running out the door to head to work.

I sure wish my daisies had survived. I planted about a dozen Coreopsis and I see one of them.
