Off to a less than spectacular start

Started putting in a few hydrangea petals tonight... ARGH! It is much more difficult than expected to get some definition between flowerettes. I expect some darker values for the background between petals will help, but I expect I won't be through dying. I vow not to engage in no reverse hooking until I have one whole mophead done no matter how frustrated I get! (However I refuse to make any promises about finishing a cluster of hydrangeas before I move on to something easier).

  1. It is looking good to me it will have a watercolor effect. I hate reverse hooking it discourages me so much. keep up the good work.

  2. I love your attitude to hang in there until you get enough finished to get a real good idea. The wool you are using is beautiful. Good luck.

  3. It looks very good from my angle! Keep going and I think you'll be pleasantly surprised! As Kim says the wool is beautiful!
