I've decided to make a wall-hanging for my friend's wedding this summer. I've got the concept: four squares about 12" wide, each with five ovals in a row across the front. The ovals will be embellished to look like: birds, trees, and beakers (the groom is a chemist) but I'm having trouble with deciding on what my fourth square will contain. In my sketch, it's fruits, but I have two problems with this: (1) it's hard to identify the fruits, due to weird scale and shape, and (2) the fruits don't have as much repeat as the other concepts. (ie. the trees, birds, and beakers are identical except for colour and scale)
I asked a friend or two and they've suggested replacing the fruits with candies or with coffee mugs, but I'm not 100% sold on either of these ideas, so I thought I'd ask some fabulous craftsters for ideas.
