Ruined the owl...



Yesterday I tried to add some shade to the owl's head with a black fabric crayon. I didn't like the result and tried to erase it, but the result was even worse...
I'm afraid I ruined my owl quilt :-(.

We are going away, camping for 4 days, so I'll leave it now and have another look when we are back.

Any way... happy new year!

I know it's hard to tell from a blog pic, but it doesn't look ruined at all to me! I think you were on the right track. He does look better with a bit of shading.

I think if you added lots of beads to the white circles around the eyes, the part that is shaded would be a very good background feature.

Of course, then you would probably have to add some beads to the owl and maybe other parts of the quilt. But it might be wonderful.

I hope you are having fun camping. We are having a blizzard in New York right now. It's beautiful, but freeeezing.

Your owl looks fine! Gives him a real personality. Mistakes, and very small ones like yours here, are very seldom noticed by anyone else when not pointed out. I think thats the case with the owl.
I wanted to thank you for commenting on my post card at cyber fyber! Have a happy new year and enjoy the holiday!

het is niet verpest joh, ik vind dat het er nog mooier van geworden is, meer diepte. Net als de cakes van mijn moeder, zij roept dat ze mislukt zijn en wij smullen er van!
