Second Belle Lettre C floss and fabric test

Started this last night as I had the idea that the Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Icing and Spring Violets would be a good combination. I think it turned out ok, but I am unsure of doing the whole project in this. I would out of necessity have to have a darker fabric. I have some Picture This Plus Lupine in a 28 count, but I am thinking that may be too harsh a contrast. As it is, I may just do single motifs in different counts/threads/fabrics and use a collage frame to bring it all together. It's an idea at any rate! :)

Well, here are my efforts, such as they are. I also managed two posts in two days. Go me! :P

Design: Peacock Lettre C taken from Le Belle Lettre C

Designer: GiGi R

Fabric: 28 count Glasgow linen

Fibers Used: Crescent Colours Belle Soie silk in Icing and Spring Violets

Well, I best be off. I need to go get ready and take DH to the dentist. Hope everyone is having a great week! :)
