Opinions?



I removed the stems, leaves, and flowers, just weren't right.  I will probably stitch a simple branch with just a few twigs instead, but wondered if a mirrored bird would be too much for this very narrow piece.


To test this I entered Paint and pasted it.  Even though the linen shading doesn't match, it certainly shows me what I needed to see.
 
What do you think?  One bird with simple branch or two birds?  With the 3" width, I'm leaning toward option one.
 
My car is being located and I will have it Tuesday.  Here's the result from weeks of investigating.
 
The Rogue - nice vehicle, alloy wheels in top package only, but the seat height adjustment didn't raise enough for me.  I need to see the hood and couldn't.  Otherwise, it would have been my choice.
 
The Forester - you end up paying more after taxes than the sticker price, no real discounts, alloy wheels in Premium only. But the interior is very light and looks greenish, we do NOT like light cloth interiors. 
 
The Hyundai Tucson - great vehicle, alloy wheels, the best dashboard layout, more front seat room, only one light color (silver).  Two other colors were not available for us to see in person. The dark wine I chose came with light interior, and two colors on dashboard and doors.  I love spectator style shoes, but not two tone interiors. 
 
The Escape - bingo.  I bitched about this car for two years and then .... bought it again.  Alloy wheels, black interior, the quietest and smoothest ride of them all, 4 wheel (all wheel) drive, and a color I like with black pinstripe.

As with every purchase whether thousands or a few bucks, I always question my decision.  And I have.  But I'm fine with it.  The redesigned interior now offers several bins for storage which was my main complaint previously.  I so hate big purchase decisions and am very glad it's over.  I spent a month on this and can't believe September is gone! 
 
So what do you think?  One bird or two?
 
Oh - I am able to send mail through gmail now (today anyway), but not roadrunner.  Spectrum (Time Warner) has no solution or reason.
 
Hope your weekend is going well.

One bird....but what will you put on the other side? Nothing?

I like two.

Deb said...

I actually like two birds. When I first starting reading your post, my mind was saying what about 2 birds. Yep two birds for me.
Love the car, gorgeous colour. Enjoy.

Two birds would look more uniform, so they get my vote.

I like the two birds.
Love your new car.........would love the be able to drive a Ford again. Find them them to be a solid "feeling" car. I'm sure you'll be able to find this one in a parking lot. Enjoy !
Happy 1st day of October........the year will fly now.

The two bird version makes a 'face' when you stand back from it . . . . I would see that whenever I looked at it! I vote for 'one bird on branch with a few leaves' version! Just sayin'! x

Annmarie said...

The two birds looks a bit too matchy for me. I like the idea of an "extended" branch...
Enjoy your new car. There is nothing like the smell of a new car - long gone from my 2012.

I like the two birds..Congratulations on your new car..I don't like big decisions either..

One bird! Zip-a-dee-doo-dah! 🐩 I actually fist pumped when I got down to the Escape and cracked a HUGE smile cuz I KNEW you were going to say THAT was it! You're back! ;) Nice color choice.

Margaret said...

I thought I liked two birds, but I think I like one bird. Somehow the asymmetry works for me. Hooray for finally getting the car buying done and dusted.

Penny said...

Truthfully, I do not know whether I like one or two birds better! I’m that kinda person. Decisions are very hard to make! I do know that I love the colors in that bird, so maybe because of that I’d go for two of them!
Congrats on the new car....it’s a beaut!

While I like symmetry and the two birds look good, since this sampler's only three inches wide I think two birds would be a bit overwhelming (though with something stuck between 'em, they'd be perfect for a wider sampler) - I say go with one and branchey stuff. Perhaps narrower branchey stuff than you had before and some very small motif(s) on the right side?

Good to hear you've decided on a car. I understand completely about always second-guessing decisions - do it all the time myself.

I vote for one birdie.
Glad you decided on a car. I can't have a car with a black interior. Same with clothing. When you have a fawn pug, you make purchases based on the shed factor :)
Happy Sunday,
Lauren

I vote for 2 birds. I have this odd thing about symmetry, so that works for me, but I am sure it will be lovely no matter what you decide!

One bird....branch with a few leaves would look great; as for the car, glad you chose the Escape...we have had ours for about 3 months, taken several trips for a total of over 3500 miles, and have found it very comfortable, and easy to drive...the price point was very good as well. Enjoy!

Barb said...

I think one bird but I would need to balance it with maybe a bit more than just a branch. The 2 birds do look good so either would be great! Glad the car decision is made. What a pain to make choices!
