I'm heavily leaning towards putting this mat, Swirling Seaweed, into the not-to-be-completed pile. The design originally had a dragon fly in the upper right area but I wasn't satisfied with how that was turning out, so I nixed the dragonfly and thought I might add a needle felted lotus. But I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be happy with that because I just dislike how this is turning out. I'm also not satisfied with the dark background. The green seaweed is temporary bits and pieces until I find the green wool I was going to use. My original thought was a moonlight Asian inspired image. The design was inspired by an antique Deerfield embroidery. Maybe I should rip it all out and restart with different colors?
