Now it is May, so I got out my "Christmasy" greens to start. But I felt that maybe they were too bright and overpoweried the balloons. So I scrounged up some darker greens to mix in and am wondering if that mix will be better. What do you think? Maybe all my years in the Pacific Northwest have given me a love for the dark evergreens. I do miss them here in the Midwest.
HERE IS A HINT: Another bit of green. I use a very inexpensive gardening glove with gripper dots on the fingers and palms for steady gripping. It works well while maneuvering a large quilt for stitching or free motion work. As you can tell, this one has been used and washed, but is easy to slip on and off.
