I Need Your Opinions!

The mailman delivered today. And I am at a loss - which linen should I use???

Let me show you the picture and then I'll explain!


You remember me falling in love last week. I went and got the floss and hurried home to order the linen. I got a Country Mocha Cashel. But, between these shopping trips I emailed Mary Jane and asked her opinion. She thought about it and mentioned a light green. I had PTP Valor sitting here at home. So, we have been anxiously awaiting the mailman. And the floss toss was today. I just sent her an email showing the possibilities and thought you guys might like to join in the on the discussion. So, which would you use??? Mom and DD said Valor - DH likes the Mocha.

Also, in my package of goodies - the linen for the four Santas and a pattern.

Large piece of Raw Cashel

LHN's newest ornie!
Had hoped to show you my newest finish - haha - I got down to the tan and black on it and have less than 30 stitches - but have not had time to get to it yet today!

Can't wait to read your comments to see where your opinions fall!

After looking and looking and thinking and thinking. I say 100% use the valor. I really think the birds will pop out with the color of the background. I can't wait to see what you choose.

I'd go with the mocha , some of the green ish threads seem to clash a bit with the green fabby.

Personally I would go with Zweigart /32 count/Belfast Linen/Blue Dynasty Overdyed 3609-5029, just saying, but I am also going to go for the mocha if you are only asking for the two. I agree with the greens clashing, Hey, I have a piece of Lavender. lol
No matter which fabric you decide it will be fabulous Denise so go with your first instinct and Be always in stitches

my opinion is, it would be easier to give an opinion if I saw the floss on each fabric separate!!!

Mocha!!!

Great new stash. I think the Mocha would look gorgeous. Look forward to seeing your progress.

Carol said...

Another vote for mocha here, Denise :)

Wolfie said...

tricky...I think the mocha is more suitable but the valor brings more drama, so it is all about if you want it to "pop" or just be gorgeous:)

I like it on the brown .. I have to agree I don't know if some of those other colors would look right on the other piece. :) There's my 2 cents! It will be beautiful either way!!

mmmm I'm with the Mocha the greens clash to much on the other fabbie ..... love your newest ornament .. that's on my list to get when I go to the show hopefully in November:) take care and happy stitching :) love mouse xxxx

I saw this today in my JCS magazie and would love to stitch this design also to put on my walls for the holidays. I like the mocha fabric simply because the leaves surrounding the birds are a "yellowish" green and the green fabric you have is a different "bluish" hue. Perhaps you could try stitching a few stitches with the floss for the leaves on each piece of fabric and then decide which you prefer. In either case, the picture will be beautiful! Adele

I've just seen this post and I'm with the majority here and if it was me I would go for Mocha too :)

Deborah said...

I would absolutely go with the mocha.

Vonna said...

Country Mocha...I think...definitely.
I love this cardinal design too...love it. You've got me thinking now myself as when I looked through the magazine last week I thought WOW...now I'm thinking I need to start one for me...but I have so many other things calling, calling...I'm sure you know what I mean :)
