One Flower Wednesday

Two more flowers for my garden, a great accomplishment considering the other projects I worked on didn't work out so well.  I was paper piecing 2 blocks that were suppose to come out to the same size....well one was 6 inches and the other was only 5 inches.  My husband said  'I can't believe you didn't notice that sooner.' Well, the 5" was not just one piece of paper you added on to - you had to combine papers together to get the finished pieced (1st time I did this).  Next time, hopefully, I won't assume the pattern is correct. 

Maybe next time I'll tell you about updating my blog and what my daughter said about darker background colors................How about now:  My daughter said it's like a how a moth is attracted to a flame,,,old ladies see all these color options and are drawn to them and so they decide to pick the darkest one so you can't even read what they write.  I know I have no trouble with the dark backgrounds, I really like them - maybe I'll try one next time....when she's not helping me.

Good luck picking out a dark background when you can't even figure out the difference between html and javascript haha :P

Your hexies are beautiful. I love the colors you chose.

Bummer about your blocks, but your flowers are lovely! I love what your daughter had to say about dark backgrounds. She is so right, in most cases you can't even read them. I get an instant headache from dark backgrounds and sadly have to exit as fast as I entered the blog. So, if you go dark, please keep your postings brief! LOL.

Sweet hexies! And I agree I hate dark backgrounds, I leave the blog as quickly as I entered! I love the little Quiltghost below too, Cutie!

Sorry about your blocks, but your flowers are beautiful, very nice fabrics. I agree with your daughter, it is more difficult to read the words on dark back ground. I was taught that in the old days when I was working on layouts as a typesetter for Magazines.

What a shame when you put the effort into making a block and it doesn't turn out - good luck next time/s! Love your pretty red flowers... and your latest siggie - very cute.

Your hexagons are great!

Since "old ladies" have the worst eyesight, shouldn't they be unable to read the dark backgrounds she's complaining about? LOL Yes, try a dark background. White on black is pretty easy for me to read, just like black on white.
