The Saga Continues

Rule no. 67: Never make a color choice at night under a flourescent lamp. (Don't ask about 1-66, I just make 'em up as I go...unlike Agent Gibbs.)

I stitched part of the "C" with GAST Celery and part with Avacado. Then I worked all that navy stuff. Looked at it for a while and was very pleased. In fact, I was having so much fun I didn't want to go to bed. But I decided the Celery was too pale, so I frogged it and finished the "C" and the innards of the top navy motif with Avacado.

I got up this morning and headed down to take a photo and thought "hmmm...maybe the Avacaodo is too dark. Maybe I need something brighter, more lively." This is why I don't design.

I'm going to leave the Avacado for a while and see how I feel in a couple of days. Right now I just want to stitch!

  2. I like the Avocado. Yellow-greens are a tricky bunch to work with.

  3. I'm the same way with choosing colors - there are just too many colors to choose from...The avocado looks great, though. Keep stitchin'
