A Teensey Mistake...
So, I had this idea - it may even have been a picture I saw... A lake, a bright blue sky, a smattering of clouds, some marsh in the distance - the tip of a cherry red canoe. , So, I painted a sky and a lake on some cotton duck. Already, I wasn't really happy, but I assumed that if I still didn't like it in the end, I could paint it out with ripples and some such. So, I put in the tip of my canoe, And I stitched my marsh. And I'm sorry to say, I didn't take a pic of the piece with the stitching and canoe in place. But the canoe, once quilted, ended up looking like a little red barn, and the stitching in the distance lost perspective and became... ? Believe me when I say, it was NOT working. So I trimmed out the canoe, and as is my usual wont - I threw a tree or two on it. Phew. Now THAT's better!
