Tosser

This morning, I did a floss toss for the dude's Christmas present--the map of Bermuda. The original pattern calls for the background to be stitched. I don't think so. Not when there's colored linen out there! So I pulled the floss and threw it on a couple of pieces of blue linen you've seen around here before.

First, I tried the light blue on which I stitched By the Sea.


Then I popped it in on murkey depths--I'm stitching Emerald Mermaid on this.



Then I looked at the colors and said, wow, those colors remind me of something...something Edgar sent. Ooooh, I'm thinking silk



So, what are you thinking?

I like the darker linens, too. So #2 or #4. But one can never be certain how true the colors are in digital photos on a computer. And I was wondering what it would look like on a more teally fabric like PTP's Calypso?

I'm thinking #2 and #3. And #4. Hmm. I like them all. Sorry for my comment, which was no use at all.

I vote for the silks on the same fabric you did "By the Sea" on. I think that the teal is too dark, although the colors really do POP, as someone else noted.
