My embroidery plans didn't change. I thought the pattern really suited the phrase so I kept it. My colour choice did though. I did the black wording when my fabric was to be red and white. The new colour scheme involved yellow wording.
I was pleased as punch during the creation of these two panels. I must say, everything was going swimmingly and I didn't run into any unexpected problems. Until I hung the darn thing in the window. Guess what? I don't like it - not one bit! (Scroll down, brace for the dissapointment...)
Now THAT is an unexpected problem. The curtains turned out exactly how I had envisioned them. And that is precisely the problem. They just don't look right. Also, there was a slight design glitch: I didn't line the white so when the sun shines through the window, you can see either a glow of yellow or a shadow of black shining through from the other side, depending on which side of the door you're on.
This means that I am now in rescue mode. The season premier of Heroes came on tonight so this is as far as I got (yes, I really did cut them down the middle). Here's hoping something good comes of this!
