I don't think I even looked at a needle all week, let alone held one in my hand!
Why? Because of granddaughters. Their pix are below, me first.
So as I looked at that glaring white spot in this D shaped 'window', I pulled out the rest of the scrap of shirt from Grace...there in a seam was this 2.5 inch long snippet in the facing area, so there were really 4 snippets...so I snipped them off the shirt and stitched 'em down. Kinda looks like they are tentacles reaching out for the butterfly...how ever you look at it, the problem spot is no longer a glaring white spot.
This is half of the whole of this cloth, with the butterfly showing where it sits in the right half...the sun shining on this shows off the stitching rather nicely...thank you Sun.
Must not forget the other half of the whole. The "distorted" weave is all stitched down. Mo Crow commented that it looked like a path going through the garden...I hadn't even seen it that way at all...duh! It sure does! Thank You Mo.
and the big D from the other direction.
3 of the 4 distractions of this last week.
I just kept clicking the camera til the battery gave out [they were ready to be replaced anyway]
