I shot this one real close with the light coming from the right in the hopes that you can see that the wall is a yellow green with more emphasis on yellow. I started on the window today. Using Water n Ice I did one of the top panes in Roman stitch over four threads as I thought it should be shortened as not to catch as it does go on a purse. Hated it, ripped it out. I then did the stitch over six threads. Hated it, asked DH, he hated it. Ripped it out again. Then, retreating to safety, I did some of the white Splendor basketweave around the panes of glass. Two cuss words and a mini York peppermint patty later, I threaded the Water n Ice again, and laid in a padded diagonal stitch over the bottom left pane of the top section. Bingo! this is the one. Whew! I sure am glad I am not a whiskey drinker!
