Playing with stash.........

Yesterday I pulled out my black and white batiks.  Most of them are from the late 1990s and early 2000s.

Here is the photo on the pattern I showed Saturday on my blog post.  The size I am making takes 10 black and white horizontal bars.

Here are the 10 I pulled as possible choices.  I am wondering if the white on top will work for the little background squares.

By tonight or tomorrow this bud should be fully opened on my cactus.  This plant has 7 buds and I have another that has smaller buds and they will be white blooms.
