Silk or Cotton

I've been working away on Angel In Your Heart, trying to get more done than what I have been lately. My latest dilemma was what yellow thread to finally do the stars with. I've now decided to use DMC 677 rather than Soie D'Alger 4232. The 677 is a softer yellow and blends in better with the other colours I'm using. I found the 4232 stood out a bit much and I could see this being the focal point of the design, which it shouldn't. The 677 is the star at the top and the rest will be redone.

Angel In Your Heart - 12 February 2010

This is a comparison to see the different threads.


These pictures are out of date now as I've been stitching away this afternoon while watching the Opening Ceremony of the Winter Olympics. I've now changed the stars to DMC 677 and got some more of the Angel completed. I'll show you updated photos next time.

I like the softer one. I agree it is better with the other colours. It is going to be beautiful when it is finished.
