Red Strings are DONE!
And since the next step is to remove the paper, here is my pile of triangles ready to have their papers removed.
This was show I though would be stupid, so I didn't even bother to check it out. Well, last year, doing something mindless (like removing paper from foundation blks) I had the TV on and this show came on....... I didn't change the channel, but I didn't really want to watch it either. Well, I watched. And now I wait for it come on!!! So, I treated myself to the first season considering I have no idea what happened, who did what and what is going on that I should know about to make this show more interesting!!! So this is how my evening is going to do tonight. And tomorrow, I will show you the next step I am on with this no-longer-a-mystery project!!
As I was looking at my blks, I noticed something about my reds. They are a darker red. They are not bright, not 'in-your-face', not brilliant. More subdued. Pretty much all of them. Hmmmmm. I think I am attracted to darker shades of colours. Which I find interesting because I love to see bright, happy, excited quilts. They make me feel good and energized. Why then do the quilts I make, seem more homey, calming, quiet.
I will be thinking about this. I realized this on my Christmas quilt 'Piece & Goodwill'. I had a friend send me some greens for it (Thanks Sandie!!) and they are beautiful!! I instantly loved them!! Was really excited to add them to my quilt when, I realized, they would stick out like a soar thumb!! The greens I used where dark - these were bright. And that is when I first thought about the colours I choose.
Tomorrow I am also going to show you a very special gift I got in the mail this week!!!
Until tomorrow then!! Night!!
