The Eyes have it . . . . .

or do they? This is what not to do to a tiger! He gets really mad as my Grandson Gavin would say.
I worked on this piece at work and when I went to get my mat board someone had used it again. That is why I hid it. Got to find a better place next time!
So we found two pieces of mat I could use for the blue. I managed to screw both of them up. Then I thought this blue would look OK! When I took the picture I realized how WRONG I was. It overshadows the eyes, the focal point, and all you see is the blue. One of the girls in the shop said it look nice. I knew right then and there ~ IT DID NOT!!! So ~ change I will!!!
I ordered three more sheets, one of each color, and I will re cut the mats next Thursday. I will post the finished one when I get it done. His eyes are so striking that I don't want anything to take away from that effect.
Tell then keep stitching and God Bless ~

  1. I don't think the blue detracts from the eyes,I really like it,just my opinion.

  2. It is very beautiful. I do agree though.... my eyes are drawn to the blue before it goes to the eyes.

  4. I do see what you mean, but not sure that I'd change it. Last piece that I picked up - they framed it through 90degrees! OK, it's perfectly symmetrical, so dh persuaded me not to spend on getting it re-done, but it looks wrong to me - the stitches are the 'wrong' way :o( It's my first ever Chatelaine too. So disappointed I've not even taken a photo of it yet.

  5. I wonder if the blue is a separate mat from the black? or is it just the angle of the cut? Can you take out the 'inner' blue? I think that would be quite striking! Beautiful work.

  6. I agree with you. This is such a stunning piece to hide under that mat. Even though you did a wonderful job at framing it. I am really interested in seeing what you'll use next.
