A Colonial Gathering Stitchin' Finish

Gentle Friends, over the weekend I completed what I set out to complete, the most recent Colonial Gathering piece called "Cotton Bird."  There is a small mistake that in the finished photograph is one way and on the chart another, I catch it until after I had ironed the piece, as it was kind of a glaring blob of green......

.......it is the white cotton blossom in the upper vine, it is charted as a solid green diamond shape, and does stand out a bit.  I went back and frogged it out and re-stitched it in with the white and it does look much better.  It will be winging it's way to Faye for finishing in the next day or two.

That's about it for today sports fans, I hope everyone had a super 4th, and a great weekend!!!  More stitching tomorrow......
Take care,
edgar

I think I might have stitched the 'glaring blob' as you called it, in the red colourway to match the flowers on the same vine.

Nice finish, it is rare that I don't change something on the piece I am stitching. Sorry to all those wonderful designers....but.

Great finish of this odd little piece! The 'glaring blog' is white on PSS sample page, too.

I tried to leave a comment, and it seemed like it wasn't working. If this is a duplicate just ignore me! Your finish is absolutely gorgeous Edgar! I wish they would offer this pattern without having to belong to a club. Glad you had a Happy 4th!

A beautiful finish, and I do like what you did with the flower you fixed. Have a wonderful week.

Beautiful finish and I love the change you made! Congrats on reaching your goal of finishing it this weekend - I always *grossly* underestimate how much time something will take.

I like the white "blob" on top. It ties in with the lightness of the rest of the piece.
