So I decided to use my grump. I went to the Batik boxes (we have like 6!) and yanked out the color of my mood: kind of a blurry brown-purple. Then I found the moods I could go to: that's the blue with sticks and the weird red-brown armadillo fabric. Then the moods I was shooting for: the yellow geometric and the watery blue and brown. Then the color of hope: pale blue and yellow. I added a few more that went with the melange and chopped 'em into 8.5" squares, then laid 'em out. The leaves worked as a border so there ya go. It was completely done by the time I left. See? Bad moods can be useful.
