Revamp of Project

I'm thinking of reducing the size of my project. On 25 count fabric & including 2" borders all round, just this much is 13 x 33 inches. Sadly, any bigger and it's far too large to be practical to hang on any wall in Castle Bliss &, to be frank, I value my eyesight far too much to stitch it over one stitch.

Ignoring the little bits I couldn't photoshop out just under the L & flower border, if I cut it down to just this much, do you think it's too tizzy with the border of curly bits?

I think that looks lovely! I was going to suggest stitching it over one to reduce the size of the piece (that's what I'd doing; 1 strand of VC silk over one on 25ct) until I saw you didn't want to do that.

May I ask who the designer of your most recent finish is?

Btw, I found my way to your blog via Shannon's blog(This, That, The Other).

Perhaps you could do two smaller ones, Love is patient and kind and then perhaps Love is.....

Just a thought :)

This is a great piece - I like the changes. Beautiful.

I think that little excerpt of the pattern looks great on its own! I detest stitching over one, so I'd be reducing it too.

Hey Lady! :)

Boy, you've got your work cut out for you, but I think the fine tuning you've given the project is a stroke of genius. I can't wait to see updates :) x
