Thank you so much for the support, the encouraging words and the good advices you have given me over the last week! Reading your comments was just like having you here with me in our living room. I could here tea cups being put back on the table, coffee zips being taken and cookies being eaten, while all of you contributed with your insights and your two cents. I had so much fun reading your comments because I love good company and I love to learn new things.
Some of your advices were things I hadn’t thought of, other advices confirmed my own thoughts, and yet others made me see more clearly why and why not. Like for instance Rani’s comment about blue and brown fabrics competing. When I read her comment I had actually already separated all the fabric squares into two different bundles and without knowing why separated the blue and the browns. It wasn’t because I knew they were competing it was just gut feeling. Rani’s comment however made it clear to me why, and I feel I learned something. Yaaayy! From now on there will be no more competing colours…or at least less competing.
Thanks to you my quilt work has taken a whole new direction. There will be two quilts instead of one. Brown and blue fabrics have been separated into two different quilts (although the second quilt will not be begun in quite some time). There will be more white, and some embroidery or cross stitch, we will se which of the two. Right now I have finnished the center piece with the colourful patches. Next is to decide what I will do on the sides. The tingle is back. I feel I’m working in one direction, with a goal, I can see clearly again. I can breathe calmly. Thank you!
