I’ve been worked with the embroidery design from Monday’s post in the last few days. The photo below shows the current state of affairs.
I’m feeling uncertain about what is happening with the balance. In my sometimes backward way of doing things, I’m now working with the photo below and playing ‘what ifing’ or ‘second guessing’ all over again. What do you think? How could I bring better balance to this piece? Or what were the flaws from the beginning?
I like the minimal look. The blank fabric areas please me. I like the repeat of the original doodle in the upper left that can be seen in the photo above where it appears on the lower right. Once I got past that spot and stitching down the straight key lines, I couldn’t stop working but I was no longer liking it. However, there is not much to rip out if I decided to do that. And if I want to restitch in a different color scheme the stitching doesn’t take long. This is perhaps 3 or 4 inches square.
