Central area

Traditional zigzag lines are easy to make regular if you knit them. But it would hardly be my work if it was regular.
Do you think it goes with the rest?

Of course, I have moved away from the traditional style. I feel it to be successful if some visitors might say it looks Mexican, Turkish or whatever. I like to globalize it.

I follow this embroidery celebration of yours with great interest! I love the bold colors - and yes, I think those zigzag lines work wonderfully with the side panels! Wow, this is a wonderful piece! Good Job!!!!

You know what, I just zoomed in and I am 'platt', it is SO pretty!!!

I think the zigzags work fine...and I like the little "braid" lines between zigzag and outer patterns too..

The zig zags are a great component, particularly next to the stars. This is a wonderful piece of work!

You know I always have to be the devil's advocate...

I like the zig zags, but I'm, wishing the dark blue details on the border had a bigger emphasis in the middle.

I really like this piece. I like the zigzags - they mesh very well with the other designs - I like the little star details bordering the zigzags. One of the things I like the most about it is that it has that bright white background- the colors have so much presence against the white. I love the red - which I always shy away from using. It is very powerful. You said you will use it as a pillow cover - for your own home? Living with art that you can touch and lean on - I really like that. Beautiful in all the details.

I'm not sure whether to keep it -- I started it as a holiday occupation, so I did it just for pleasure, but I would not resist to selling it either.

It definitely has a mexican taste with those colors!

I actually find the zigs and zags very restful. This piece just keeps getting better and better.

yes, i agree with susan, the dark blue is nice grounding element. and of course, i would like the white ground to be more tea colored. have you ever painted with tea? this is quite a project. very energetic.
