Reinforced Corner of Sail

I've always liked grommets or eyelets. I remember, after learning how to put an eyelet in fabric, everything I made there after had eyelets--covered buttons--that's another thing I made a lot of--no covered buttons on this sail--don't go looking for them. It always bothered me that women's clothes aren't made as strong or as well as men's. Often the seams are not reinforced--the fabric is thin or cheap--it won't last. Men's clothing are finished and strong with good cloth--I don't know how true this is today--I don't shop all that often, but it was true back when I was making my own clothes. I would reinforce all my seams---maybe this was a bit obsessive, because after doing all that work, I'd end up not wearing the thing or giving it away. I guess I'm drawn to reinforced things--strength--durability--this sail can hold up to the winds out at sea.

Beautiful. It reminds me of an iridescent butterfly wing.

I love the colors here.

Pastel: blues, yellows, pinks, and greens all flowing together beautifully.
