I'm sure by now you know I speak the truth.
And you're wondering when I will finish this fruit'in fox. Soon. And then you will understand more about why I was always asking your opinion, which I really appreciate and thank you for.
After reading your comments, some of which STILL do not come through to my email thank you very much Google, I wondered if the brown would be better.
A little trick I do, is to use Photo Gallery and Paint to change color and placements on areas where allowable. So I changed the color to brown to see how it would look. I'm not crazy about it, but am leaning toward removing the black stitches and using the brown, either 3031 or 3371. I just tossed the browns on the linen originally, this manipulated photo is a better representation. It's a little time consuming but I have my methods honed since I do the same for the box labels. Lots of cut copy paste resize rotate! I'd rather see this before I remove and change only to find out I don't like it.
I didn't take into account the black stitches on the fox, and those will show better without all the other black. I guess when you change everything, charting the entire design in chosen colors before you start would be a MUCH better idea than winging it as you go. I've learned a lesson. So tonight, another removal and color change, but if it's for the better it will be worth it. And every time I create more work for myself, I get an extra piece of chocolate. So far, this fox had 2 bags of Dove.
Have a great weekend!
