Still plugging along here on the Floral Glove project, I’ve managed to finish the silk embroidery on the central floral element on the needlecase. The other day, I showed you how I adjusted the shape of the flower. I received a few e-mails and comments requesting a before and after shot, since some readers weren’t sure which shape they liked best. So, here they are:
This is the before shot – the flower prior to picking it out and changing the shape a little bit.
And this is the after shot, with the “new flower” in place.
I prefer the symmetry of the new flower, but did you notice something that happened with the new? The petals became less distinguished. The gold outline, however, will take care of that.
What’s your pick? The before? or the after? Leave a comment and let me know! Next, I’m moving on to the gold outline.
I’m a bit swamped with company this week, after a busy graduation weekend, so if I don’t reply to e-mails right away, please understand! I’ll do my best to catch up in quiet moments!
Happy Memorial Day! Have a terrific week!
