Opinions Please

Good Morning!
I need some feedback. Back in January I started this for the Halloween All Year Long SAL. January's theme was pumpkin.



I am going to finish it as a 2 sided ornament or fob. So the question is.... Should I fill in the open linen on the pieces in the opposite color? Would this make it more dramatic. It shouldn't take me that long to do. Or should I leave it as is?

Thanks for the help!

Chris

P.S. this is a Bent Creek Design called Pumpkin & White

I like them the way they are!

Ooohhhh....that is a tough one. I love them the way they are, but think the opposite thing would be neat too! I know if I can't help, I should just not comment ~ lol!

I rather like them the way they are Chris.

I guess I am the oddball I would start stitching with the opposite color to see how it looks if it looks odd just rip out the threads and leave as is.
Good luck

Good Morning, Chris
Give it a try filling in orange on black and black on orange...I stitched my this way and I think it makes a dramatic statement. If you don't like it, it's an easy rip-out!
I look forward to seeing your finish!

I have a hard time imagining how they would look. Perhaps the ladies who suggest trying it a bit are right -- just to get an idea of what it would look like?

I like it just the way it is.

I would leave it as it is. If it looks good, and it does, then don't change it.

Another vote for as is.

Hello Chris,
They are cute and you should leave them alone.

:)

Carol said...

They look great just the way they are :)

Love them as is.

They're very cute! I would leave them the way they are.

Melissa said...

Oh, that's a tough question! My laid-back-summer mode says leave them as they are as they look great. My adventurous side, after reading Diamondc's comment, says it might be really cool to fill them. Of course what you could do is to always stitch another set but with the second option!

They do look great but I think they would also look amazing filled in. Why not just fill in the eyes and see how it looks and if you dont like it take them out?

Christina said...

Ohhh, I think that's a great idea! Although they do look good as they are. Sorry, hope I haven't confused you! ;0) x

Penny said...

I can imagine the black around the orange, but not the other way around. I would probably leave them as they are. :)

robindefender said...

Either way would probably look good, but I vote to leave them as is.

Myra said...

I like them as is Chris.

Ellen said...

They look great as they are, I love them!

Hugs,

Vera said...

Hi Chris, I like them the way they are too!

Berit said...

Love it!!!!

I want to stich some Halloween!!! :o :o :o

I think I'd leave them; but it is not like it would look bad as you suggest.

Brigitte said...

I like it the way iot looks now but I can easily imagine that it would look great filled in. I think I'd try it out like some of the other ladies suggest.

Susan said...

I like them as is, but maybe fill in one element, like the nose, on each one and see how you like it.

Julie said...

Either way they are going to look fabulous, but looking forward to seeing what you decide.
