A La Belle Etoile SAL update

Been plugging right along with my The Thread Basket with C Mon Mode SAL. I am not too entirely certain I like the 'Hiver' stitched in the Crescent Colours Sweet lavender. I think it's a *tad* too light. I am thinking about ripping it out and restitching it the lighter portions of the Elegant Eggplant. I'd love to hear what people think about it. :)



At any rate, here is what I have so far:





Design: A La Belle Etoile SAL

Designer: The Thread Basket with C Mon Monde


Fabric: 28 count silk and linen in natural by Wichelt

Fibers: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Elegant Eggplant, Ivy League, Sweet Lavender, and Tumbleweed. Gumnut Yarns Stars silk floss in #991 ecru. KreinikVery Fine (#4) Braid in 001 Silver.


Accouterments: Jolee's Jewels - Crystallized Swarovski Elements in Purple Violet 4 mm bicone, Crystal Moonlight 4 mm bicone, 20 MM Crystal Aurora Borealis star and 16 mm - Crystal Aurora Borealis moon.






Well, that's all for now. I have a ton of stuff I have to get done today. Hope everyone is having a great week! :)


Respectfully submitted,

C.

Your piece is coming along so nicely. From the photo I have to agree that the "Hiver" is bit too light. The Darker purple you have used seems to "pop". It is beautiful no matter what you decide to do.
