Do Not Weep continued
I had to darken some of my darkest purple with purple fabric ink because I needed a darker shade. Next I added the third purple shade of fabric. Here I made a mistake and was glad the fusible was not fully attached. Usually my pieces are numbered 1-6 with one being the lightest, but I did it opposite this time. I've been working at short intervals and came back to do the next layer and thought I forgot some places because I forgot how I numbered the piece. I added more of the second darkest fabric where I should have put the lightest fabric. Anyway, here is a picture of the mistake and then the correction. I also found that my next color is a bit to close to the number 5 fabric and I need to go shopping for another shade. I usually number and letter all my pieces so I know where they go. Not wanting to waist the time I just numbered by shade and am having to spend lots of time figuring out which piece is which. I will not make this mistake again.
