colour..

... I decided to add a bit of colour...  the little pieces of white that I added with FME didn't stand out enough for me... they just seemed to disappear into the fabric when I got some stitching done around them.
It looks great up close ... but, just not enough oomph...















I love the way the bits of colour look with pieces of lace and organza built up on top of them, but, I think next time I'll let it ruch up a bit if possible...it is a bit too flat looking for me.                      















 I did add a few French Knots of yellow to pick up on the colour of the printed fabric.
Almost ready now to stitch up and turn and see how my first little off-white cushion looks....still looking for some off white fabric for the back side.. my silk is a bit too white...... might have to go shopping....

Shopping for fabric? I don't suppose that's really a terrible hardship?

do you just want to use white thread? If you work upside-down and put some decorative threads in your bobbin, you can add some color that way. The metallics and decorative threads can go through your machine if you put them in the bobbin--they don't fray.
