You know that little voice in the back of your head that you like to ignore because your having fun and don't want to stop and listen...well I should have listened. I now have a weekend of picking threads to look forward too. Why does that voice always have to be RIGHT! Or more to the point why do I not listen to that voice that I know is always right.
The conversation went something like this..
Me- Oh feathers would look great in this border!
Voice -Feathers don't suit the fabric
Me- The thread color I picked looks great!
V -Feathers don't suit the fabric
Me-Wow...the tension is wonderful!
V-Feathers don't suit the fabric
Me-These feathers are turning out great!
V- YES but they don't suit the fabric!!!
Me- DONE the top border! *stands back to admire work* Hummmm...I can't really see the feathers and it kind of looks like scribbles on this fabric.....
V - Do i need to repeat myself.....
Me-*sigh*......were's the seam ripper.....*grumble grumble*
That voice also told me not to post a picture...so I'm listening to the voice! You don't want to know if I'm picking beautiful feathers of YOUR quilt do you?
