Advice needed

This afternoon I learned Gwen received the PS Exchange I did for her, so I can show a picture now. It was the first time for me doing a banner, and I'm glad she likes it, at least, that is what she told me ;) The whole exchange is shown on the HoE-board, I forgot to take a picture (again).

Another thing to show is the progress on my bourse stitching. And please give me some advice about this, because I am so badly in doubt. Should I go on stitching in green and dark green, or would it be nicer to keep the whole design in purples? Please comment on my blog, and let me know what you think!

Hi Joke...your PS exchange is lovely, I would have loved it too,-)))
About the greens...I would prefer purple only, but I am not sure if I would frog it...when finished into a Biscornu, it will look good in both colors I think,-)))

Happy stitching,

I love your purple and green combination!

Hi Joke, I think the purples with the greens looks great. I would keep doing it that way. Unless it's really bothering you and you feel you should change it. I know sometimes if something doesn't look right, it will keep bothering me till I change it.
This is my first chance to visit your blog. I will add it to my blog list later if it's ok with you. :o) Be sure to visit mine too and let me know you were there. :o) I will be updating later today.
Hugs, Elaine

And I'd stitch in purples.

Hi Joke,
The PS exchange is one of my FAVORITE designs!! I love it!! If you are okay with the purple & green combo, I would keep stitching with it. The green makes it all "POP"! Barbie

Hi all,

Thanks for your comments, I decided to stitch along this way, so with the greens in it. Maybe sometime later I'll do it in only purples, I have a bit left-over of the fabric :)))

I love the combination of purples & green too. I would add maybe DMC 3847 OR 3808 to bring it together.

I like the colours you're using - lovely design.

Your banner turned out nice, Joke. About your dilemma.. I think the dark green looks nice, but the lighter green needs to be a bit darker. Really, it's a matter of personal preference, though. Good luck with your decision.

Your PS exchange is just gorgeous!!!

Virpi said...

Beautiful exchange and I would vote for greens =)

Sandra said...

Hi!!! I think you should keep on stitching this way, the combination creates a nice effect. I'm sure you'll love it at the end! So far, it's looking beautiful.

Darling PS exchange! Just to support your final decision, Joke, I would stitch with the greens, as well. I think they add a richness to the piece. It's very lovely.
Hugs, Deb
