Both forest and sage feature in these. It's looking like that around me now, the grass is an incredible emerald green, the English oak and another mystery tree, maybe a beech, a rich forest green, the original mystery tree I asked about turning a yellow-green and yellow, and the black walnuts a medium green. Lots of green shades for sure! I laid all 20 blocks out on the design wall and played around a little to see if I need to add more or how to set them...
and this is what I've come up with so far.
In other QAL news, Fireburst is now a flimsy, awaiting another border I think, and then quilting. May I just say right here before you all, that menopause sucks: Always an excellent speller, I have issues with homonyms now and then, think I mentioned that, (here and hear/ reed and read etc). There's sometimes a disconnect between my brain and my fingers as I type. That disconnect is also at times between my brain and my mouth. Odd words come out, "I was vacuuming the sink when I noticed the suction was poor," I see rug in my mind, and sink comes out. I used to be able to add up numbers super-quick in my head; I could just 'see' the totals; now I usually have to write them down or do them slowly in my head twice or more. Spatial things elude me from time to time too: I get left and right mixed up (but I still have a great sense of north/south/east/west, must be the farmer side of me from my dad that still works fine) ands mirror-imaging, as in the quilt above or visualizing a flip of blocks can cause my brain to misfire. It is both frustrating, and I'll admit a bit worrisome.
Where is this going? Well I sewed the centre block for Tish's (The Madd Quilter) Fireburst mystery. Got the pieces out that were required, set them out...wait a minute; something's not right...
So I took apart the purple 'wings' and put the eight pink squares in their place, re-sewed. Pressed. Laid down the centre block, all fixed, in its place:
Sewed all the blocks together, and took it outside into the sunshine on the green grass!
I'm contemplating adding a final border of some kind as it's just 32". Mind you, it would be a nice-sized table centre for spring. Here's the second: What do you think? for this post! Thanks for your input.😁
In final blogging news, I still haven't fixed my no-reply blogger issue where I can't comment on blogger blogs with the comment box at the bottom of the post, but I wrote to a blogger forum and got a couple of fixes. The first one didn't work. Sigh. Takes time away from sewing, so I'll try the other fixes another day. Sometimes I can do the Open URL option, sometimes not.
