Using netting and paler threads, I added these into the background of the piece. Yes, that looks nice, but does that do enough? I've lived with this for a week now and still can't decide.
I've had a few ideas, first thinking of what Mary had done on hers.
This is one of those ribbon 0r ladder yarns. Made of rayon or polyester, they have a nice sheen, looking a bit like beads when applied carefully. But that doesn't sing to me.
I have a nice big box of trims, owing to being the family repository of several generations of sewing supplies. Isn't this a fun one? I thought it might look like baby's breath or maybe Lily of the Valley weaving through my pansy bouquet. The metallic thread is just for the shimmer ( I love shiny things)
(sigh) I can't say any of these ideas thrill me. How about you????
