What does the writing say ????

"Warning, unexploded projectiles"

Don't know why I have it hanging there; Mr.Ruby pinned it there and I've just never bothered to take it off. Sorry, boring story. |O

@Ploshkin .....what about white perhaps to give a sharp frame?

White could certainly work.  I think it's one of those things I would leave out for a few days in different guises and stare / squint / glance at every time I pass.  I find it helps with indecision, I do it with borders and bindings.

I am so disappointed!  I assumed it said 'Warning, unexploded projects' and referred to your sewing room!
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

..sigh....unhappy with colours, some of the fabric (cheaper stuff I must admit) has stretched to bu--ery, can't decide on the background, wasted too much time trying to get it right and am losing confidence in bucket loads so have binned the lot. :( and retired with a glass of wine to lick my wounds.

Nooooo!  Get them out of the bin and put them out of sight for a bit and stop thinking about them.  When you revisit them I'm sure you will find that they are not the monsters that have currently formed in your head.
