In the class I took last weekend I completed ONE Dresden Plate. But I had cut and made half the wedges for the remaining eight plates. Yesterday I sat and stitched and ironed as well as cut and turned points until I made SEVEN plates....
But while I am waiting (and letting my aching wrists have a holiday) I though I would ask for some opinions from my audience (that means YOU) about my colour combinations. I was planning on making seven "sisters" - the next one under construction is chocolate brown.....
Then I am told these are called "madder reds". It wasn't my intention to have ALL dark reds, I wanted bright reds as well. Some of the other sisters have more light/dark combinations in them.
What do you think about that ?
Is if fair to ditch the chocolate sister? Chocolate is usually my friend, I feel harsh!
Or should I have more colours and make extra sisters?
And while I am asking questions can anyone tell me if my EXTRA large photos take too long to down load when you are reading my blog? Just out of interest as I noticed most people don't have such big pictures on their blogs...just wondering why?!
I use to cross stitch, before I became a patchworker. Now I just admire, but if you love cross stitch there are some gorgeous FREE patterns to be found here at Freebie Gallery.
I hope your having a fun long weekend....for the majority of Australia that are experiencing one!
Happy quilting Sue SA.
