Not the best day to-day.
Got up this morning and did a couple of hours stitching before the rest of the household surfaced. Pinned the piece up on a big board – and really was not happy with what I saw.
The individual elements have a lovely quality – but the piece as a whole doesn’t read well. The colour flow from pink at one end to green at the other is jerky.
I am particularly irritated with this bit showing the dolphin
From a distance – this dark green stands out too much – actually not all the dark green but the little trail of green that arcs out towards the right. It is a bit better now that I have machine stitched in white on top of it. But it is still rather obvious – so I am Mr. Grumpy and we will see what tomorrow brings.
