Today was a very hot one. Went for a walk early today and spent most of the time walking from shady spot to shady spot and avoiding the sunny streets! Perfect day to sit home in the air conditioning and un-sew.
Absolutely hated the lines of stitching I did in my orange blocks. Black lines echoing the cording on each block, but not evenly spaced and not flowing well. At first I thought just adding more lines would cure it or doing the lines with the walking foot. My hands would not obey those thoughts and I just couldn’t do it.
I spent a good part of the day picking out the black thread lines. It takes so much longer to un-sew than it does to lay down those lines! But I knew the black had to go…
Here’s where the orange on orange comes in…it just seemed like the absolute obvious answer! Make the orange background recede just like the white background…duh! Not sure I’ll get to it today, but it’s the first thing on my agenda for the studio tomorrow!
It feels good to have a solution to this puzzle.
