Anna Scott at her blog and see what she has done. Her embroidery is exquisite and it is all finished! I just love the shading that she has done in the blue....or is it green threads??

This leads me to an 'affliction' I have had since I was a child.
At school I apparently used to colour the sky green and the grass blue, so some years back at an eye review I found myself being tested for this apparent colour confusion! The first test that is done is the Standard Ishihara test - which I always pass.
My eye specialist went further and made me do a Farnsworth D15 test......and he nearly fell off his seat when I proved to be positive!!
It turns out I have a colour vision deficiency! I have made some 'blues' (pardon the pun!), in my quilt making over the years and have had remarks to support this. Statistically this is extremely rare and that is why the doctor jumped with joy! He then tested my daughters and one has inherited it. In a nut shell it is the next defect from the more common red/green one. The one I have is the blue/yellow defect: Tritanopia (Dichromacy), to be precise!
I challenge you to take this simple hue test online HERE. There is another one HERE for my particular defect. You might be surprised at the fine line of hue difference. Perfect score is 0 and my best........136! I call it artistic licence! I wonder if William Morris saw colour like we do.......
