I think I am obsessed with Joan Elliott designs. I know I have been entranced with them lately. I have all the season fairies from when they were in Cross Stitch Collection, and all the elemental goddesses, along with the Christmas angels. I treasure them.
I pulled this one out the other day.
The Water Goddess. Isn't she gorgeous? I have been drooling over her since. I wanted to stitch her as if she was in the night time. Since there is a moon behind her and night is probably the time a water goddess would come out. I thought black first, but a couple people thought that black would be too harsh. I'd have to convert her hair to another color, and I wasn't sure what kind of a girl she should be. A red-head? Nah, that's for Fire! Blonde? Not sure on that one. So, I decided to change the fabric to one she'd fall against nicely, and would still give that nighttime feeling.
Mystic by PTP. Do you think it will be OK? I ordered Lugana, which takes the dye a bit lighter than linen, so I'm hoping it will be a good choice. The other ones that I was looking at were more aqua and I thought that would blend in too well with her gown. I even thought of a green, so it looked like she was in a forest pool, but you'd pretty much have to see the fabric in person to choose the green, and I don't have that option right now.
I guess I'll have to have faith and check out the fabric when it gets here. If not this one, what colors would you choose to give a twilight/evening feel?
