Major decisions today....what do you think???
This is four of the block returned and they are spectacular and would be stunning just assembled as is.. But I really want to use them with the peacock...soooooooo!
And I like it. But extending the block with more patches and embellishing is going to add a LOT more work which seems to be the theme of this block... more work and more work. What was going to be a week or two is now a month or two at least.
But when you see them together you can see the difference an extra 6-8" of green adds to the block. Adding more green foreground pushes both the tree and mountain back and a larger block is in better balance with the fans...Luckily I have a bag of the original fabrics with lots of greens. I put an A an B on these as I was going to give you a vote...but since I already decided on B that wouldn't be fair. But if you do have an opinion on these changes, I'd love to hear it!!!
DH will take me shopping but he hovers and although he doesn't actually say "Are you done yet." I can see him fidgeting... I miss being able to drive just for these kinds of errands where I just like to wander and think...
