Really liked the white on white background I made yesterday and then I tried out the green stone I was planning on adding to it.
Hmmmm…not so much. I believe that it will go on a white background at some point, but not this one. I decided to go bigger than my original 6″ plan, so I placed the white on a piece of black plaid wool. Still no go with the green.
Looking through my stash, I thought this bright pink stone could certainly stand up to all that white and look good with the wool, too.
And this stone is so beautiful!
But the combination wasn’t making my heart sing. Back to the stash…
THIS made my heart sing! Look at the lovely lines on the stone. And it stood up to the background just fine.
And I found a few more stones that look good with it and with the whole grid thing going on with this idea.
Next decision–and this is where a big bead stash hurts your brain!
Design question—lots of beads? Or very plain with just some black or white or variegated gray hand stitching?
Still undecided and this is where I left it. The decisions have to roll around in my head for a while before I start stitching on this one.
Since I’m “watching” baseball with the hubby while I’m writing this, it seems like this piece is in the on deck circle, waiting for it’s turn up to bat! Maybe next inning!
