In my last post, I was all set to forge ahead with the second virgin’s dress using turquoise and cantaloupe. I wasn’t sure if it would work…. I hooked just a small amount and wasn’t happy with it. I felt that it not only had no connection with the rest of the piece, but it was too bright and dominated far too much.
On the other hand….if I continued, it would be surrounded by lots of turquoise, which might well tone it down . I thought about another option….If I used a pink, it would tie the two costumes together and make the whole thing more harmonious.
I considered these two options for several days. The first was more disconnected than I wanted, the second more harmonious than I wanted.
Eventually I came up with a compromise. I overdyed the pinks with prochem raspberry, which kept the “pink idea” but changed the colour and shade from the one used in the first dress.
Still lots of dyeing to do and the dress details need to be refined, but I think I’m pleased with this compromise colour solution.
Now if I could just take a photo that was in focus,…. (I never seem to notice until it’s up on the computer and too late to get another shot).
Thanks for stopping by and looking at my “fuzzy” hooking.
