I was warned, but I didn't believe them. I can see dust and dead ants and spiders webs and other things I have been missing. (Like just how many wrinkles I have on my face.) I never knew that I had blue rings around my brown iris', I thought my eyes were just plain brown.
I finished a friendship block for one of my quilting friends. Before the operation it looked good. After the operation it looked terrible. I have now re-stitched it and I can see an improvement. The brief was to use blue fabrics on the base cloth provided and she wanted a basket of flowers. I like the idea of a handbag.
But I just had to add a little colour. I used a deep red for the stitching around the handbag and added French knots to the centre of each of the flowers on the bag.
I was tempted to use a bright yellow in the centre of the flowers but restrained myself and used a bright blue for the seed stitching.
It is always a good feeling when you can tick something off the 'to do' list.
