New start...

I started a new project this weekend....and I'm not liking it.
For the last couple of weeks I've not been in the mood for stitching, it's just too freezing cold and I'd rather get in bed and watch tv after work, but on Thursday I received the latest issue of Cross Stitcher magazine and saw this oriental lady and thought she was very pretty and maybe starting a new project would be a good thing to get my stitching mojo back. But as I worked on it I noticed the colors don't blend to well, the light plum is too light *ugh!*. So now I'm not sure if I want to continue working on her... or maybe with the backstitch I'll look better, right?

Hace un par de semanas no me ha provocado bordar, esta haciendo mucho frío en Lima y de lo único que tengo ganas al llegar a casa es meterme en mi cama y ver tv. Pero eso cambio el último jueves en que recibí la última edición de la revista Cross Stitcher, vi esta mujer oriental y me pareció linda así que decidí empezarla el fin de semana. Y bueno este es mi avance de sábado y domingo, pero la verdad no me esta gustando mucho como esta quedando...el rosa pálido me parece muy claro y contrasta mucho con los otros dos tonos de rosa. Ahora no sé si quiero seguir bordandola o no...o tal vez con el backstitch se disimule un poco la diferencia, no??

Great start:)

Is there a lot of backstitching on this one? I noticed on Geisha that some of the colors didn't blends as well as I think they should but there is tons of backstitching to do so I figure that is what will make it beautiful.

Oh no, not liking a new start, that's terrible. Maybe it will grow on you as you get more done ;)

Too bad you don't like your new start, maybe you will like it when you have done more...

Oh, just go on! When it is finished it surely will look nice. If you still don´t like it then, just give it to someone as a present ;-)

Maybe once you start to back stitch it the colors won't look so bad.

Backstitching can make a big difference, i think you are of to a great start! But i know how hard it is to stitch something if you're not enjoying it, it certainly wont help bring your mojo back. Good luck :)

Hazel said...

Awww sorry you aren't enjoying your new start. I think it looks great personally but you have to enjoy it. I go through mojo yoyos too!! Hope yours comes back soon. xx

Michelle said...

It's pretty! Maybe once you do the backstitching over the top of it, it will look like you want.
