Needing some candid comments about this towel the colors, this is the hand towel for an order for embossed swan design. I have done this one many times and love it but they have chosen CREAM towels not so sure that is a good choice. will up load some others for comparison.

it looks very good, but I would look even better if the towl had the color a little bit darker.

I agree with some of the other comments. I prefer the darker towel for more contrast, but I see nothing wrong with the cream towel. You can still see all the detail. You did a very nice job too.
Hugs, Susan

Your embroidery is perfect and the towel is beautiful. But I see why you are not fully satisfied. You have done it before with a diffent colorscheme which made it stand out more and you liked it more. Nothing wrong with this one though. I for one would love it in my bathroom.

Depends whether she likes understated designs. Cream towles do seem to be popular!

I'm not sure what it would look like...but have you thought about blue flowers, green or brown leaves, and black swans? The metaphor meaning of a black swan is un unexpected event. I hope it wouldn't be misunderstood. If you used a dark charcoal grey thread with the silver grey a bit darker it would stand out on the cream towel a lot more.

I will play around with colors as you suggest could be fun. Black Swan is the emblem of Western Australia. May suggest that. after all she does live in australia.

Lovely for both of them. Swans are serene and if you visualize them in a marsh land area these would be perfectly in nature.

Thank you for you comment I agree Swans are serene. this set is for DIL's mother and she is a lovely sweet lady, possibly doesn't like bright colors.

I like conny's idea of a pale light green for the leaves. What about more of a buttery yellow for the flowers, instead of golden yellow?

It is beautiful, but I would choose a pale, light green for the flower leaves and try a darker colour for the embossed part(a brown tone) maybe like your choice for the leaves. And then remember that some peoples don't like too many bright colours or big contrasts, so I think a "pale" version could be quite beautiful.
By the way I love colours - the more the better, but I can also see that sometimes "less is more".
If possibel, show them a sample and get their accept or their ideas for colour choice.
Conny
