The Table Piece - Hardanger

 Here's what I'm working on now.  I don't really have a name other than "the Table Piece".  It is different than alot of my past Hardanger projects in that it is "open".  I personally love having every single inch of a piece filled with stitching but I thought I would do something different.
 I love the stitching.  I have to say though that I have never had to rip out more stitching than I have on this piece!  Don't ask me why.  It isn't like it is extremely difficult or anything.  The stitching is nearly perfect.  BUT....the colors??  That's a different story.  When I selected the colors, everything went so well together.  But now that it is stitched, I think the yellow may be too light.  Or the orange/green may be too dark.  What do you think?
 I decided not to worry about the colors yet.  I am going to just continue on with the details...the cutting, wrapping etc.  And when it is done, if I have to do something to darken it up in the middle, I'll decide then.  I am thinking that once the details are done, it might automatically darken up the middle some.
