Celtic Ladies from Lavender and Lace     Reply with quote

I am reposting this in its own thread hoping to get some answers.
I have not planned out my own cross stitch, I mean I always followed the 'example was stitched on...'. That is why I am having such a time with deciding which fabric to order. With the Ladies I was thinking of getting something dyed a very light color because there is so much empty space but I don't want to detract from the Ladies so I am not sure what to do because I do like the simplisity a plain fabric has too. Ugh, no wonder I always just follow what they do in the examples. I would greatly appreciate some input.
I love the look of these seasonal Ladies:
I am thinking about Spring to start with. My daughter wants something with the different seasons and she loves Celtic designs and I have wanted to do these for along time so I thought perfect gifts.

I have these ladies on my list of to do's. Do you have a lot of fabric on hand? Or will you be ordering it from somewhere. I remember one of the hand dyed fabric sites let you superimpose the pattern over the samples so you could get an idea of what the finished project would look like.


This is a really good site and this page gives you an idea of what a project would look like on the different fabrics they do:

Did you ever do what's called a "floss toss"? That's what I do to audition possible fabrics for my projects. Especially important with the Mirabilia and Lavender and Lace ones because of the negative space. Just pull all the colors that you are going to need for the pattern and lay out your fabric and lay out the colors on top. You will be able to see right away which fabric the colors show up the best on. That's how I do it. Hope this has helped you.
