What do you think?
I was going to order a new piece of fabric for Mirabilia's Stargazer ... but going with my mission this year to only use fabric (wherever possible) that I've already got so as to save money, and use the oodles of fabric stash I already have - I went through my fabric today and found this one. So what do you think? It looks a bit more dusky in real life, the blue tinge through it doesn't show quite as well either ... but is there enough to bring out the blues of the design. I quite like it, I was going to go with a thundery grey coloured fabric (had to find one
that matched what was in my head, of course LOL) - from the pictures I've seen of this stitched up though - the nighttime colours seem to make the design get lost on the fabric. I thought I would fall in love with Countrystitch's specially dyed fabric for it - but having seen it finished I think it makes look the lady is being drawn up to the "light" (probably just me!). So, anyway, what do you think? crazy, yuck, cool - or what? (it is Silkweaver's Greystone)
