18th Century Sampler - Acorn Band

This weekend passed by really fast. I only got the chance to stitch on Sunday, but luckily was able to spend the entire day stitching. I love days like that :)

This next border is made entirely in satin stitch. The acorns are padded so they have a nice dimension and it all looks really soft and shiny.

Now, I have a question: Do the colors look right? I've been staring at it for two days and can't figure out if I like it or not. Should I have also stitched the leaves in green?


  1. Hello DD
    I think it looks great as well !!! The green is enough, WOW!!
    it's looks so delicate and fine. :))

  2. If you are really worried, unpick a couple of leaves and replace them in green. You'll soon know whether you like them or not!

  3. I would say "no", but you're the one who has to be happy with it. Love the 3D effect of the acorns.

  4. Hi, I think everything looks great. To me they don't look like leaves, but instead like finials at the end of rods.

  5. I think it looks really lovely as it is. This is beautiful work and will be a real treasure.
