The NYMQ 2012 turned out to be Nots and Krosses. High temperatures, high stress, lots of not's - not cool, not straight, not the right colours, not the right size, more krosses. And then, I mananged to finish the top. A bit busy, not over neat (LOL) with criss crosses and some naughts jumping out of the design. There is always the satisfaction of finishing a top - perfect or not. The resolution that my forté probably doesn't lie in perfect patches but rather in art.
Note to self: A gold embossed, red patterned fabric will NEVER be neutral.
