I took Nina Marie's advice and added some medium value blues. I think it helps a lot. Nothing after the row of little flowers is sewn down yet and more will be added to the top. I might add some more little birds somewhere, maybe in the blue pieces on each side of the dark crisscross strip. What would I ever do without rick rack??? The bottom half needs some more verticals to tie it all together but now I'm quite happy with the colors.
