April / Easter Weaving

I wanted to weave a short table runner with Spring / Easter colors, but also attempt a fairly complex pattern using overshot and pickup techniques. I started with some nice Easter-y pastel colors (the first photo), but was not happy with how the pattern was showing up. I wanted it to be a bit more bold. So, I switched to a deep lilac color (probably deeper than any real lilac), and while the pattern shows better, I don't think it is as Easter-y in color scheme. Oh well.

The original color scheme. The colors here are a bit off because of poor white balance in the photo.

The finished runner. It is about 30" long.
