You know, some days it just doesn't pay to get up. LOL. I can laugh now that I have my mess fixed. But, in Claire's class, we discovered my fashion fabric (the boucle') had a distinctly greenish cast on one side and pinker cast on the other. So....since green definitely isn't one of my colors, we use the pinker side. Well - guess who forgot? If you guessed me, you would be correct. Gah!!! I had to unpick at least 6 quilted pieces, maybe 8, I forget how many. Remembering to put wrong sides together for me is very difficult. Now you know silk leaves needle marks in it. So I had to be very careful in re-quilting the relaid pieces. I now have only 2 more pieces left to quilt and I'll be done with all the quilting.
Now for a little fun, more creative interlude. LOL. I went to Loops yesterday hoping to find another yarn or two to add to my braid palette for the jacket trim. I found a couple. These pictures really don't do them justice. All the yarns I purchased are really pretty. Please click on the picture to zoom in on this gorgeous yarn. The 2 pictured at the bottom are the new ones from Loops. The thick one at the top is the braid I made from twisting the 3 together. I love the way it looks. I'm going to work up a mock-up of a braid trim and when I have something, I'll post a picture for you.
Since I've been correcting the mistake I made with the quilted pieces, I haven't been able to get back to working on my winter robe. Hopefully soon.
