- Just peachy

Retrospective (6/12/2016)

Patch #163 One way to gray ...



Original Post

I'm practicing for beach week ...


Note to self: Don't let one over-ripe peach fool you into thinking that they're all ripe.

I also had a fantastic thrift shop day: lots of linen finds in bright yellow, clear turquoise, soft gray (which has eluded me), warm rose, pure white with a great print, and an earthy burgundy. Except that I washed them all together. And the burgundy ran. A lot. Now they're mostly shades of peach, with a stormy sea blue for good measure ...


Note to self: Don't let yourself be fooled into thinking the colors in old clothes won't run.

Got this selfie, pretty in peach ...


Note to self: Time flies.

So now I'm stitching the week's weather patches. It's sunny outside, but I won't get fooled again ...


Instead, I think I'll wait for the ill-fated turquoise to dry so I can make Patch #163 Cautionary Tale ...


Last note to self: there's more than one way to gray.
