Looks cold, doesn't it? The wind around here is so strong that it has blown away a lot of the snow. These mountains always look so silent when they are covered with snow. It is a good day to stay in my sewing room.
Early Sunday morning when I drove my honey to the airport, the temperature was 1. We have dipped below zero a few times this year, but I have blissfully been inside a nice warm house, so that's OK. I think we are going to see some warming this week, anyway. We will be up in the high twenties!
OK, on to the good stuff. Sewing and fabric and such.
This is my good example of what not to do. I didn't really like the fabric I had chosen to put in those places, but I thought,
"It will be fine. When I get it all together, I will like it better."
I have a little wall hanging that I made years ago. It has one piece of fabric in it that I do NOT like. I didn't like it when I pieced it, but everyone said it was "needed in the quilt." Now every time I see it, my eye goes right to the piece I didn't like. I have thought about ripping it out now (too hard) or appliqueing over it, (too much work), or painting/dying it (ridiculous), but I guess it will stay forever. A reminder to DO WHAT YOU LIKE!
So much for reminders. . . I did it again.
