    well that's how we all learn by doing it wrong then doing it better next time. good luck in the future. I went through the same things. Not always pleased with what I have done too.

    I absolutely love that color combination. Coral is one of my very favorite colors.

    Turn it into a Victorian like block. Add some ric rac/bric brac and pearls, lace. You could run some colorful thread thru the stictches. You could start with a lacey center then run the colorful thread out and about. Jazz it up and you have a cute little wall hanging! I really think it's the start of something good! You're just not done with it.

    I like it! Soft with a pop of color. Keep going, it will grow on you and show us when finished.

    I personally think this is very pretty! Can't wait to see the runner when it is completed.
