Opinion please

Hi guys!

I have been wanting to make some embroidery hoop art for ages! Finally I made something during the week.  Firstly it's a poor photo so apologies for that but I took it with my phone this evening and it's not a proper shot but anyhow!  It's a little christmas tree on linen.  You may or may not be able to see the gold beads in each red star again apologies about the photo quality.

My question is this.  Do you think I should add a little bow where the screw is or simply leave it the way it is?  You see where the base of the ribbon is?

I am undecided to be honest.

Well have a good  Saturday guys!

  1. I like it just as it is. A bow might take the focus away from the tree, which is absolutely precious.

  2. I think you should embroider a little sprig of holly there, with two little red seed bead berries. Red is always good to make 'em look!

  3. I also think it might detract from the Christmas tree itself. Keep it simple

  4. I love the idea of a bow!!! But Sue's idea is also great! Either or, I think it could do with something at the top. It's very pretty!!!

  6. Maybe a little bow as a finish? I do like it the way it is though. (not much help was i?!)

  7. I could go either way, but I think I'd stick with just the ribbon as my first option. It's awfully pretty :)

  8. I love the way it is! Blends in with the color of the embroided pieces! Nice job.

  9. I do like it as it is. If you decided to experiment and add a little bow, try something that is not too big so the main focus remains the three, which is gorgeous by the way!

  11. Hi Fiona,
    I would try the bow, maybe it needs to be seen before you make a final decision. Lovely work!

  12. Hi Fiona,
    First of all, your blog is gorgeous! I would add a simple bow (maybe a sheer ribbon) that could double as hanger. Anyway, it's lovely!
    Best,
    Molly

In case you think I am being awfully rude by not acknowledging your comments it is because I find that a lot of you are NO REPLY bloggers.

You need to change your settings and input your email address so that I can reply. There are blogs that walk you through the process but fear not it is not hard to do!
