Do you ever scare yourself doing something different? No I don't mean things like skydiving or swimming with sharks. This blog will never be about thrill seeking. I'm old and scared to do those things!
I mean in quilting. Using materials that aren't the normal, as in non-cotton.
I saw fancy leaves in my head, but shiny, like a silk ribbon. Silk ribbon embrodiery didn't work so I came up with a different plan.
I bought wide ribbons in greens. Unfortunately all they had were 4 colors, but I made do. But when it came to doing it, I got scared. Then I decided if I was to succeed, I had to start somewhere.
This poor checker board background has seen so much ripping out! There are still holes all of it. I try to massage them out but they're still there.
Long story short, I'm ready to reveal. I like it. I don't love it as much as my pomegranate block, but close.
So here you are, two pics. One with flash, one without. What do you think? Have I done the daffodil justice? Is it still springs favorite flower?
Or should I mulch it up and start over?
