Number 3 looks a bit muddy to me. I’m always self critical, a bad habit. A bird also 💩on it while it was hanging on the drying line 🙄. The ammonia in the poop darkened the fabric in two perfectly placed dots. Ha! The interesting things one learns along the way. They've all since been washed gently on cold and are hanging again in the shade, waiting patiently for their turn under the sewing needle. 😉
