Make a Wish

After admiring my new quilt on the wall for a few days, it occurred to me that too much of the black background was visible through the lighter fabrics (mainly light orange through yellow and pale green). It didn't take me long to realise I was going to have to do something about it for my own peace of mind. I unpicked about 1/3 of the hand applique on the outer, cut 2 layers of soft iron-on interfacing to just fit in the gap, ironed them on, and replaced the stitching. I finished the stitching on the back verandah this morning, enjoying the wisteria scent - while Eleanor slept and James did the 'watening' with an old watering can and found all the dandelions he could.
