I’ve been thinking about my sign dilemma over a pleasantly busy weekend.
I spent my Saturday soaking up art and architecture at the wonderful Wirksworth Festival, whilst lad and his dad went to a football match.
(I definitely had the better day – Luton Town lost 3 – 0).
And on Sunday I thought about it in between giggling at the creations at Hickling Scarecrow Festival.
I loved reading your sign suggestions!
It’s always good to get a bunch of perspectives. And to sleep on it before making up your mind.
Even if it does make your head spin a bit
I tried out the lettering on the only plain coloured fabric I have, as suggested by Rachel.
Bold and bright certainly, but it’s somehow just too…. solid?
And too blue.
Even with a border.
Then I tried another option:
I know I said busy is good.
But perhaps you can have too much of a good thing?
Its something to do with scale. And the fading isn’t a good look either.
And then I remembered this.
It’s full-on modflowers, turned up to the max!
It’s actually a sun lounger sling. Genuine sturdy 1970s canvas and until now, totally unused.
I think it works! This could be it!
Or am I deluded?
That canvas will be a nightmare to sew…
And I do quite like my original choice still!
