What do you think?

Will Karol Anns beautiful african fabrics make this cross stitch into a nice wall hanging?
I won these fabrics in a give away on her blog and have been wondering how to use them. I'm a little concerned that the orange may be a bit pale.
What do you folks think? Click on the pic for a larger image.


Moya will be calling round next week, I'll ask her opinion too.
And just a quick close up on the bears, I did start working with some other colours, but some of them are so pale, they may as well be white! LOL

In the end rather than stop working with white entirely I figured I'd be better off working turn about, 2 lengths of coloured thread and two lengths of white. So as well as filling in some of the polar bears features the panda has grown a bit too.

I'm on late shifts for the next two days, so hope to get plenty more done to this.


I'm off to pick up my needle.

You've managed to get quite a bit done. I do like the green fabric with this, just the right shade

I love the fabrics, I really need to see it, but perhaps a thin first border of plain brightish orange could frame it a little before you added them. But then it will probably look just stunning unframed....I really need to lay the thin border down next to them and think a lot...can't do that by internet! Tracey

I think they look terrific with your xstitch. You don't want the fabrics taking away from the desing you've spent so many hours stitching.
