RSC 2020: Dark Green

Kermit knew it best. It isn't easy being green.

Dark green doesn't take up much room in my fabric stash.
Or my mind.

It's easy for me to say I don't like dark green.
It feels depressing to me. 
Like murky swamp waters where creatures live under the slimy mossy surface. Ick. 

I was going to jump in and get this month's challenge done and I had hopes of finding that dark green and I could build a friendship. Not best friends, but at least we could nod to each other upon passing. 

 In early May, I gathered the dark greens that hid out at the bottom of my green fabric pile. Apparently, they don't get along with the lovely limes, tantalizing teals, opulent olives, captivating celadons, magnificent mints, lyrical laurels and shameless shamrocks of their color genre. 
Nope, these dark greens here huddled deep and alone, waiting for a day to be chosen for a sewing project. 

I yanked them out. I started cutting. I used a few curse words. They were not pretty...neither the words or the fabrics. It didn't help that the next day (after a break), that I realized all of the squares were cut too big. I needed 2" squares, not 2.5" squares! 
The horror of 2.5" squares will be around to haunt me for a long time now.

I pushed through and recut them. Then started stitching. I got them all stitched together in one afternoon. No bonds of friendship were formed. 

Those dark greens kinda stick out like a sore thumb. 
I may end up taking them off.
We'll see what June's color is and I'll revisit this. 

Poor Kermit.

  1. That is so funny! I love green in every shade and tint it wears. This is a beautiful strip, to me. Green is restful and nourishing to me. It's my favorite color - all of them.
