One of the IWOM’s 50th Birthday Presents For Other People (since I neither needed nor wanted anything) was meant to be pinned to this homemade frame for the initial appliqué work. 

It was meant to rest on my lovely oak trestles up in the craft room or, on a sunny day, down in the sunroom. After the project was done, the wood lengths would live their second life as further drawer dividers. 

Well, the project technique changed so I don’t need the frame after all. The drawer project is in the middle of the winter house jobs but I’m patting myself on the back this morning for being clever in the first place to chose the wood I did.
