Is it a turtle? A bird? A lump with legs? After looking at it for awhile, I thought it just might be a dove with an olive branch in it`s beak. But then that begged the question...why do leaves in black? So I dropped the black from this section...and possibly the whole sampler. It just looks too harsh in contrast with the other colours. And what the heck...as I had already made some earlier changes, and it will be hanging on my wall, I may as well do it so I will enjoy looking at it!
Keep stitching ladies!
