On Day 14 I started a project I've been fretting over for about a week. And on Friday evening, I needed to make some commitments. This is a piece called Flower Power by Ann Strite-Kurz that I bought a few years ago. The pattern calls for canvas and perle coton but I, of course, wanted to be different and do it on evenweave. I chose a 28 ct rose evenweave and some DMC threads -- it took me forever to do this. Then I had to attach the fabric onto the scrolls. By the time I actually sat down to do some stitching, it was about 8:30 - 9 pm. The first thread I chose was grey -- it looked so pretty on the rose fabric. *smile* The second thread choice was a dark purply mauve. It too looked realy pretty on the rose fabric -- however -- it overpowered the grey *grumble!* Sooo, I frogged the grey and added black instsead *eureka!* Then I went to bed. Here's the result (fyi, colors are wonky):
