Jennifer of Needle Artworks suggested a couple of changes to my colour scheme. She suggested a slightly less intense dark blue to the one I had selected and a different shade of green. I am really happy with the changes. I think the colours go together very well. I especially like the purple, that colour is so me. I suppose they are safe choices but this is one design I really want to get right.
I have mounted my silk on the frame. I now have to transfer the design to the silk by stitching through the tissue paper and silk along all the lines. I may be here some time!
