Sad sack

Hiya.  My sack idea worked, but I didn't like it on the door. 
 
Too bulky looking or something.  And the container needs to be right up to the top edge of the sack for it to hang right.  If it's on a porch door it would probably be much better, but after I soaked mine to test it, it hung like a wet diaper.  The inside liner needs to fit very well and I'm sure I could sew this sack to achieve that, but it didn't snap my socks so I'm done with it.  It will just sit on a table or something.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
As for the PS design, I had a little trouble with the greens. Do you think I made the right color choice shown in the stitched leaf, or do you think the 3052/3 would be better?  I chose the others because I am thinking there will be too much "soft".  With the vines encircling the pale house, I thought the sharpness of 734 pulls it together instead of washing it out and nicely contrasts the linen. I wanted  3011/12 but you can see where I tested 3011 beneath the house and it's too dark.  When I cover half of this photo and see only one option, the left side seems better.  'Ya think?

I like the yellowy-ness of the green in the leaf you stitched and think it will keep the finish from looking too bleah. One thought - how do those greens look with the fox's color?

I like the stitched greens - I thought the other ones but with the fox color it will be better brighter. I think anyway

The leaf shows up much better than the line under the house. You chose well! I like your sack--quite creative. Bet you get the additional bonus of a bird's nest in it too! :))

The leaf pops on the fabric and 3052/3053 looks too bland. Those colors would work but the yellowish greens sparkle. Kelley Secrest

I agree with the above comments. The leaf really pops.

I like the leaf with the two colors. It is more realistic than if you stitched it in one color The thread colors are good, too

I like the bright green of the two toned leaf you stitched it pops against the dark linen. Good choices on the two toned stitched leaf.

Marly you crack me up. Just the title of this post makes me laugh.
You come up with some very novel ideas for finishing your stitching and it seems that is the case with gardening too.
Thanks for the smile as always.
You've had plenty of advice on the green leaves in your stitched piece and am sure that by now you've already made your decision.
