go back to the beginning and have a re-think!
It wasn't what I intended when I got out of bed this morning but as the day went on I found myself doing this....
Auditioning fabrics for my Dear Jane. That sounds a lot fancier than slapping fabrics up on the wall then tearing down any that glared at me... which is actually what I did. I'm still not sure about them and I've already rejected two thirds of the fabrics I'd stashed for this quilt!
There is something else bugging me too.....
I don't like the forth block from the right up there. It looks OK in the photo but the camera is playing tricks with that 'pink' in reality it has a brownish muddy look to it. Not nice. Looks like I'll have to make that dastardly block again!
Call me mad but as I've only made 4 blocks (thank goodness) I'm thinking of maybe starting over. Maybe even ditching the red/cream colour plan. Problem is I don't have any other colour scheme in mind. Maybe I'll just throw every colour of the rainbow at it and hope for the best.
I got myself in such a fankle with the whole thing I had to take a break. Lucky for me I'd found this yesterday....
Issue #1 of a brand new quilting magazine. I'm really pleased to see a 'Modern' quilt magazine out there in print. So what if I'm teetering on the edge of senility I like seeing what all the young quilting whippersnappers are up to... so there!
I'm thinking I need one of these.....
or maybe two. Heck... lets make it half a dozen. I can never find my spec's case so a few of these scattered around the house would not only look decorative they would save me a lot of stomping around in a paddy turning the air blue.
After a good perusing session with that magazine I still wasn't calm enough to get back to DJ so I gazed at these for a while..
How cute are they! They're on the front cover of the latest Mollie Makes magazine. Totally irresistible.
Well.... all that magazine reading was very nice but it didn't help clear my mind. I'm still at loggerheads with Dear Jane.
I made the mistake of asking Mac to take a glance at the wall and give me his opinion.... I really should have known better.
He huffed and he puffed and he blew my wall to bits! It just wasn't 'working' for him. Hs 'artistic self' just couldn't 'see' where it was going. Well..... neither could mine but he could have sweetened the pill a little bit. Or just plain lied. Honestly that man doesn't know the meaning of the world diplomacy!
So.... I'm right back where I started. No clue how to go forward with this one. Oh well..... reckon I'll just take a leaf out of Scarlet O'Hara's book.... I'll think about it tomorrow.
I'm off to find myself a friendly squirrel. I could really do with one of these.......
