I'm struggling with the curiosity cabinet swap, so prayer flags are on hold. Besides I can't get to that side of the room right now!
I am so with you on that one, Carol! I have one carefully laid out and in need of at least pinning if not basting before it's moved, but I have to ignore it for a day or so to get caught up.
This was a flag that I was struggling with (I won't tell which one) and then suddenly in the middle of the day at work the picture of it came to me. I put it together that evening and "Yuck!" It looked awful - I couldn't remember why I thought this was a good colour combination. But I know myself well enough to just turn off the light and go to bed, and sure enough, when I looked again the next day it had somehow become okay again. Now I can see why I thought it would work. It's important to trust your creative ideas, even if they seem stupid as you're doing them. Give yourself a little time to step back and look at what you've done with a fresh eye (sometimes it takes more than a few hours) before you attempt to fix it.
