Twisting Take 2!!

Yesterday everyone decided to give me an early Christmas present.  The little ones took a 3 1/2 afternoon nap and the older ones enjoyed some unsupervised craft time :)  Which meant I was able to finish my Twister.   This is a gift I am trying to finish up by Christmas.  However, when I finished I was not quite as happy with my results.  Don't get me wrong, I don't hate it or anything, I had just planned for a brown row, a brown-pink row, and then a pink row to pop.  The pink row really pops but the brown-pink row just blended to much with the brown row.  You know when it just doesn't quite turn out the way you had seen it in your head :)


So . . . . I grabbed the remaining pieces from the Heidi Grace pile and decided to use the tan brown instead of the brown I used previously.  I didn't use it initially because it has the same print as one of the brown prints but I think I can handle that if it makes a greater distinction between rows.  So this is what I will be working on today :)
Pin It!

  1. Hey...I think the pink and brown one looks FABULOUS!!! As long as you get a good two-color contrast, a twister piece looks great...and you achieved that with this. Yes...it's not what you had wanted...a 3-color contrast, but this one is perfectly wonderful!!!
