I'm working on my November piece...but haven't had a chance to get on my torch and make the required focal bead, so I'm not finished. But, I have managed to back, edge and join my first 2 pieces for September and October. I backed them with the same color ultrasuede and joined them with a picot in ivory, hoping that color will work for all 12 months. Then I joined the 2 pieces with right angle weave. Amazing how picot edges are just ripe for right angle weave! It isn't difficult to match the picots, even if there are an unequal number. I may eat those words when it is time to join 3 pieces to another 3 pieces!
