Afternoon Tea. Page 1 finished.

Hi everyone!
This week end I finished my first page of Afternoon Tea :)
Don't like the border :(((  On the  picture it's more beautiful:
What do you think about it?

This first page looks really nice !! But I agree with you : the border looks more beautiful on the original picture. But I'm sure your stitching will be awesome !

I think the border will look better once you've stitched all of the design. On a corner piece like this one, the border draws a lot more attention to itself than it will on the finished piece. I think it will look fine.

I'm planning to stitch this one, "Ta da" and "Teacup bath" to liven up my livingroom. As the other two don't have borders, I think I'll stitch this one without a border as well. But since I'm currently working on the first row of "Fairy Wishing Well", I think it will be a while before I start my next HAED, so I might change my mind.

Magali, Sarah, Heli, thank you so mush for your comments and advices!!!

Heli, me too, when I started this project I wanted to stitch without this border, but it looked so pretty on the picture... :)

I think you need to trust Michele's charting ! things often don't look 'quiet right' when you have done only a bit of the chart. I have had a couple of 'that can't be right' moments, but when I'd worked a bit more and then stood back to look at it, it was perfect.
I don't think the picture will have the same 'feel' to it if you leave the border off.

Thank's Elizabeth!
It's what I'm doing - trust Michele's charting :)

It's look more settled once there's a bit more border there, I'm sure it will. It always looks a bit odd when you're still on the first page. And it's looking really lovely

I'm doing this one also. I like the border & I agree with every one else that it will look better as more of the picture is stitched.

Wow! Looks great! Glad that you included the pattern picture too!
can you tell me what stitch you are using?

tanushka said...

Thank's Ali. I use full cross-stitch, as for all my works.

tanushka said...

Yes Cindy, I know :) I've seen your blog - very nice. And so many BIG works!
