Yesterday, I shared a link to Mary Anne's blog. She posted a fix to a "stitching gone wrong" problem.
I think her solution is absolutely brilliant!
Mary Anne did not care for the cross stitched long stem rose in the first photo. She felt that it over-powered the other elements on her block. I agree with her. It's too much going in the same direction and it's too heavy. The eye doesn't know what to look at first.
Mary Anne's fix was to cover the area with a pretty eyelet doily. She added some small cross stitch roses and a pretty light pink rosebud trim along the edge.
So much softer looking and now, nothing competes with the broiderie perse applique.
Speaking of Broiderie Perse, I will be post Part 2 of my tutorial this afternoon so be sure to stop back for that!
