Flower Coaster and Trivet Set



I completed another felted and machine embroidered coaster/trivet set. This one has flowers as it's theme. I thread sketched these with a multicolor variegated thread and I'm not sure that I like the results.
Here's the trivet and the pattern is just not well defined.




Here's the tulip,
the lily,










a made up flower,






a morning glory,







a crocus,


another view of a morning glory,
a columbine,
and a poppy. So what do you think of the thread choice? I am considering going over all the flowers again with a deep purple thread so that the designs stand out more. But I don't have a lot of time and would prefer to just leave them. What do you think? (sorry about the way this post is set up, blogger is going crazy again.)

I like the variegated thread. The colour is great.

The threads and designs look beautiful on the felted pieces.

Why you don't like the result? I think it is fine.
I like the flowers on the felt.
