|Beacon in the Darkness|
|Wonky Log Cabins|
Then I worked on the deck cushions. One is done and the second one just needs a minor adjustment. Three more to make. Greg was right, I should have just bought them at Home Depot.
I looked at my twenty-one yards of new fabric and attempted to visually sort them by value. Way Off! I wish I'd taken a photo of my attempt but I too quickly rearranged them correctly after peering through the "Ruby Beholder." (what a name!) So work with me a minute on this: enlarge the photo by clicking it - then count up from the bottom, or darkest fabric. Doesn't it look like #5 & #6 should be moved up (lighter) and #7 & #8 moved down (darker)? Now go to the colored photo. 5 & 6 are the chartreuse and magenta. They are LIGHTER than the blue and sage above them? How can this be? I need to be better at this!
|This is how they looked after rearranging.|
The fabrics look so much more interesting when spread out dark to light. They looked rather boring and too "pretty" when arranged by color as they were on arrival.
