Mary Wigham part one


Part one of my Mary Wigham Sampler is ready. I am very pleased with the colors as they look now, but I can tell you the decisions about matching the different colors to the ornaments wasn't easy at all. For the gray flower ornament I had to pull stitches twice. I started of with a brick red but than though that the sampler is getting overall a little bit to red, cause I am using so many different shades. Than I used the light sand color that can be seen now in the initials. That wasn't good either, cause it would have made the bottom part just too light. Finally I desided to go with a plain medium gray. And this is how I like it best for now.

Oh wow, it's gorgeous! I love your thread choices.

I haven't got around to pulling the threads yet, so I'm not sure if I'll stick with the recommended threads or choose my own.
