I would love your idea's on this!!!!


I have been beading and stitching this piece off and on for several year's! It started when I went to outside dining area at Tavern On The Green in NYC and was SO inspired by the chitz lantern's & evergreen animal sculpture's outside with the contrast of the city skyline! It took my breath away! I headed to the fabric store the next day and purchased fabric's that looked like the lantern's.I still have quite a bit of beading and stitching but don't know how to finish it! I was thinking a black border as it need's to "pop" but would LOVE your honest idea's !!!! Thanks SO much! Sorry these pic's aren't better! (double lick for larger ,better view)

Hallo Terri! I am so impressed but your work! If you asked for a opinion, I do not like black, so I can not gave you my opinion over black. What I think it can be nice, to make the border from the same colors as your bloc but in the opposite clockwise! I do not know if I am very clear:)Thank you for visiting my blog!

Hi and thanks for the comment left on my blog - I'm sure my Dad is watching over me. Do you have Photoshop or something similar? I had the same problem with a painting a while back I didn't know what colour to do the background so I photographed it put it into Photoshop, cut out the picture of a tulip and put it onto different background colours until I found the one that worked. It's the one in November 2006 of my blog. Or failing that scan part of the work and print it on to a piece of A4 paper and put it up against the colour you think to see if it works.

Sometimes black can be too strong as a border but navy or bottle green would work just as well.
I think Susan's idea is great.

I like your buttonhole flowers, which remind me of Morning Glory. I think I would lay the block against various colours to find the right 'oomph' shade to set the pale colours off.

Thank you for your kind comment on my blog. cheers Maureen

Terri, this piece is so delicate and beautiful. I would add a small border using one of the pastels, or perhaps two borders, the inside a thin pastel pink and the outer a thicker pastel green. (Same fabrics used in project)It is hard to say unless you see it in person. Try to lay it on a full piece of black and see how you like it. Then do the same with the pastels. That is what I do. Sometimes I am surprised to see what works best. It sure is pretty.
