Finally the kit of Konstantinople Hamam Mandala has arrived!! The colours of the silks are gorgeous and they look very good on the black fabric.
Still, I think that I am getting a bit of cold feet. I never stitched on black and this design has some black and dark blues mostly DMC that I am worrying that they will not show up well on the fabric. I spent the afternoon contemplating whether I should keep the black fabric or else stitch on a lighter fabric. I totally love the preview on black and until now I did not even consider a lighter fabric. I think if I change now I might regret it later. If I decide to stitch on black I will start next weekend.
