Deciding on colors is so hard! Some people are really good at it. I think Thea Dueck of Victorian Sampler has a knack for picking colors. I know I'm not really good at it. I also know that color makes a world of difference in whether I like something or not. I am changing the colors of the Quaker Bag. I am starting a new large motif and I wasn't sure what to go with. I thought very light pink. So I started it but didn't like it. It was very hard to stitch because it was hard to see. So I thought I'd take that out and try a cream. Maybe that would show up better. Nope.
So I was looking around at threads that were handy. One of my favorite color threads is Gloriana Sea Heather. So I tried that. I can see it so much better. I like the colors in it. I think it will do.
Then I was looking at Elizabethan Eights. I am not wild about the colors. Then I saw that the colors had been changed. The photo reference page showed a much lighter blue on the third panel. I like that better. So I took our the very dark blue and put in Sea Heather instead. Much better.
I got a bit of the lower right corner done on the Big Mermaid. It is coming along but very slowly.
A friend is stopping by this afternoon to see my stitching. I love showing it off. Fun.
11 days until the tour.
