She wanted light colored stars with dark backgrounds.
Sometimes I have trouble performing such instructions. I get a little too caught up in the value of the fabrics. For example, I don't think the yellow above is very light. It is actually a very medium valued yellow. I have very few truly "light" colored fabrics, a handful of pale pinks and a couple of lavenders; but very few light blues, greens, etc. I need to get better about the way I shop for stash builders.
I tend to look at my stash and think "what color am I particularly low on". For example at the moment, I have limited yellows, oranges and browns. Luckily, these aren't colors I use often, but there have been a few times when bee mates have asked for things and I don't have them. Perhaps I should start reminding myself that I need more lights and darks in general too.
Anyhow, I hope that these contrasting stars are enough light and dark for Gi.
