ALL PUFFED OUT.Remember my recent experiments with Suffolk puffs?
I fancied playing about with some Autumnal colours and I fancied doing something quick!
My other current project, the hexie skirt, is forever evolving in to something more complex than it was the last time I picked it up.
I used a cheapo top I bought in a high st. shop, mainly for the fact it looked comfortable and had pockets.
But after an afternoon of wearing it I realised it was missing something vital despite these two most wonderful of qualities it already possessed.
And that thing was colour, beautiful, vibrant, seasonal colour.
After rummaging in the overflowing scrap box I found a fitting selection.
But now I am thinking that this has been my downfall.
It all looks a bit too bright and lairy.
So now my quick fix has become yet another long term jobbie.
Hopefully not to long term though I just need some advice from a friend about the best way to take the colours down a little, make them slightly more muted but without loosing the autumnal feel or altering the colour of the tunic.
Don't want much do I?
I also think it could all do with a bit of hot wash to knock the stuffing and perkiness out of the little buggers.
Ho humm, one day may be I will find a quick project that will stay just that.
Love Nora xxxx
