This morning, I’m wondering how close is close.
Is dark navy blue close enough to black that I can use the 10 yards of binding I just made?
This is the backing.
I wanted to take the rest of the fabric and cut it on the bias and use it for a binding.
It’s kind of jarring for me. I didn’t realize that the backing was navy until it was pin basted and decided I didn’t care. It was close enough for a back. But, I’m thinking I need a more solid black to join the black print on the front and the navy stripe backing.
Or maybe not. I decided, after sewing on just a foot of the binding, to wait and think about it for the day. I’m in no rush. If I have to make more binding, then I will. It’s not like it’s a big deal. And, I’ll have all this binding for another project.
Today is my work end of year celebration. Not dreading it this year. When they asked what I wanted to do, I said lunch and then go do something after, where we can sit and visit. This surprised the event organizer and I could tell she was pleased. Last year, we had lunch and then a very relaxing beer in a pub after. That would be good. After we end, I’m off work for the rest of the day. Yay! gotta love that.
Rob is getting better. He was well enough to go to the office and take care of some things that really couldn’t wait. But, he’s coming home in a couple hours. Poor thing. This is the fourth day.
Thankfully, his dog is feeling better, too.
Have a great Thursday. Lane
