Still having an issue with wanting to stitch so I chose what should be fun and a change from the marking samplers.
I stitched PS's The Fox and the Grapes decades ago, and have always wanted to do it on linen instead of my original Aida. What do you think of using the dark blue/gray that I dyed recently, sort of a night scene? Looking closely at this linen, I will definitely need to move up in the cheater glasses, probably to 2.50.
The fox's rust will stand out nicely, the greens can be lightened, the berries brighter, but do I want the house that light? I think it may be too much on this very dark ground so I am looking for a grayish taupey neutral without a yellowish tanish look. Ya know what I mean?
I'm leaning toward the 644. And you know what? I'm actually getting excited. And that doesn't happen very often to this crabass.
