The "fix"

On my last post I showed this rose with crocheted leaves.  I liked the crochet leaves but they didn't come across as leaves or relate to the rose... The rose itself was the wrong color, wrong texture and too stiff as it was out of satin ribbon.  So off it came and............................









I made a new rose from a strip of soft silk and put the center a little "off center" and the color is perfect.  I left the crocheted leaves because I liked the texture but added new leaves over them from silk a slightly different shade than the rose.. plus added a little fluff that picked up the sheen of the gimp.
 All in all I'm much happier as the color is so much better... before and after....
 And I am home all day for a couple days as they are tearing out the tub, the wall and pulling up the floor to try to fix the plumbing problem....

I knew you would come up with the perfect fix - and you did. That looks so much better. And now the crocheted leaves seem to blend in with the lovely braid behind instead of fighting with it. Maybe with the first rose being such a different colour it made me focus on the leaves as being different than the braid.

Oh, yes, this is much nicer! Thank you for teaching us how to look at our projects, see a problem, and then fix it.
