PLOS .. Too Conservative I Think!


I have been working on my Personal Library of Stitches class for a couple of days. I have no problem with the stitches, but cannot seem to find the right balance of colors..ughh

I was just killing time, and visited you again just now. I do like the work, but agree the color is too conservative. something in the air, I suppose - I'm having the same problem myself. Just can't get it right. Spent a fortune today on threads, and it still isn't right. dull. It will get better. Love your work.

Your colours are subtle but that is OK!! If you want to brighten it you could up a bit add a brighter yellow/oragne flower and some brighter green stems - just a suggestion. Or you could add some colour to the 'sky' part - perhaps a butterfly in brighter colours or a variegated thread...

Thank you both for your wonderful comments. Amazing as it is, sophie, just today I did put some butterflies on it..still in a muted color, but a pale fuschia. Looks much better. New pic to follow soon.
