I am really really not happy with this one
point the first: Consider the fact that the palette is COMPLETELY outside my comfort zone [ what can I say ? I thought it'd be a good challenge ... sigh ... shrug ]
point the second: After all the hours spent painstakingly embroidering grasses, they are toooooo subtle that they don't show up unless one's face is six inches from the bottom of the quilt
point the third:
I totally and irretrievably stuffed up the placement of the stencilling:
'Long' is far too close to the reverse applique kanji. In my defense, the flipping stencil is opaque, making placement a bit of a crap shoot at best ... but I knew this ...I've done it before. I should have used one of those 'blue wash out pens that I hate so much' to trace the positions in before I reached for the oilpaint.
point the fourth: with so many hours already down the gurgler, you'd think I'd just toss it in the corner - or the bin - and move onto something else. That's probably what I'd advise someone else to do, surely ?
or at least take some time away from it ?
plus I know if I take it off that design wall and fold it up, I'll NEVER get back to it.
Why can't I do that ?
I've binned 'no hopers' before this
'T'is a puzzlement!
