Baseball watching is a good time to do hems. I like to baste my hems first, then running them off on the sewing machine is quick work. Clipping the thread tails & removing the basting is good TV work, too. Here are the nine hemp/cotton dishtowels hemmed & ironed, courtesy of the playoffs.
But during the day it's all business. After looking at the double twill samples, I felt that there wasn't enough green. In theory, the sections combining blue & yellow wefts should have looked green, but they were a pale and washed out green. I tried another set of samples using red, yellow-orange, and green as the wefts (instead of the original magenta-yellow-turquoise), and this time got better greens. The palette has an entirely different character, as you would expect. Since the project requires a strong green, I'm going with the new weft colors.
Here's the entire set of 72 samples, with some wrong side action showing underneath.
It was a very satisfying day. And the Cubs won!
