Love with a Capital L January Progress
Hello! Here is my January start on Love with a Capital L. While I love how the colors work together in the border and decorative elements, I felt the pumpkin was too pale in the text (see Patient and Kind). So I skipped around the chart, until I could find a better color. And I skipped the big capital L (top left) because I want a highly variegated thread for that. I am considering Caron Waterlilies "Hot Peppers". Is anyone familiar with that colorway?
I'm happy with my new start; I worked on the first 3 pages though none are complete. Eventually I did find a better color for the text: Gloriana Silk in Copper. This will be a focus piece for February since it is all about Love.
