I was aiming for a random look (organised would have been easier for me) so not quite sure why it took me 9 hours to piece the other seven strips today. There are a few wallflower patches but I hope to tie them together with stitch, applique etc. (I did lay a second fabric beneath some of them) and, if all else fails, there are always colouring mediums! . Apart from the Broderie Anglaise, what trims I had were either too fussy or coloured up too garishly. Similary the plan to embellish patches of a particular fabric before piecing together didn't materialise due to their final positioning (they were too close together for my liking). I can't wait to start stitching!
