After reading all the comments and looking at the piece in bright daylight, I decided to stick with the Hyacinth and add a touch of lilac to the piece. I really like how it looks on the fabric and how it combines with the other colors. I am still undecided whether I will take out the bag on the bunny’s back though. My dear stitching friends suggested to leave it as it is. I have ended some other colors on the backside, so taking it out would be quite the challenge. But you never know. I will just finish it first and then see what I’d like to do.
Here’s the border done in Hyacinth.
I am hoping that I will be able to finish this project either before or during Easter this year. there’s not that much left to do and I am having so much fun with it. It would be great to get it framed so that next year I can just pull it out of the closet and put it up.
