Though I thought I was nearly finished.....I keep tweaking the design....trying to add interesting little details without detracting from the main elements.
So I found myself cutting and attaching tiny ferns along one side of the river. After viewing them (without the pins holding each piece), it was apparent the color needed to be toned down a bit. Dang....
What to do?!? The pieces are already ON the quilt so whatever I do can't migrate to the background. After a bit of pondering, out came a pad of Distress Ink. Using a Q-tip.....I carefully and very lightly went over the offending ferns. Of course it would have been smarter of me to make that adjustment prior to attaching the pieces to the quilt.....however, sometimes you can't see the forest through the trees until you are right there!
I'll be somewhat absent again for a week+ as I head to CA to be Grandma!! (Unless I can figure out how to blog from my older ipad........but then you'll be bombarded with pictures of the most adorable 3 year old ever!!!) Back before you even can miss me!!
