Decisions regarding a Bird House.

I have been putting together some simplified versions of the Bird House for kits.
When putting together something like this, there are lots of little decisions that need to be made. Decisions that dictate how a project turns out.
It is very important to get these things right! :)

Like a light or dark background. I like the darker version but decided that there wasn't enough value contrast to make the elements stand out.

Do I hand stitch the background as in the original or machine stitch for speed?

Do I machine stitch around the blossoms?

Or just hand embellish?
Decisions, decisions!
You can see what I have decided? What would you have done?

  1. I like the darker version too. I tend to make something and then do the pattern differently because that is how i find what I do and don't like and with my patterns, it is ok not to have an exact;)

  2. Half and half. some machine stitching and a little hand to finish it off.

  4. As a lover of texture, I always say the more stitches the better! I always prefer the look of hand stitching, but we must be practical sometimes too. I think the choices you have made are perfectly lovely!

Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
