Finally, all 12 oval motifs are done. Yes, most of you noticed the difference in thread here. I did not have enough of Lizbeth 80-647 Purple Iris Dark to finish the remaining 6 ovals, so I used Lizbeth 80-177 Elderberry Jam which is variegated. Now to join them to each other and to the main piece with twisted chains. Sounds tedious.
Colour-wise, I am thinking too much purple. I want to add more red but I do not want to put in another order of thread as I have tons, just not in the right colour or size.
I have to choose a colour where I have a new ball as at this point, lots of thread is needed. Lizbeth Size 80 threads come in 10g or about 184 yards per ball of thread.
