A Little Stitchin'

Gentle Friends, I finished up "Christmas Tree Farm" over the weekend... here's a snap...


... a change I made was to go back and took out the middle band of "Jolly Holly" I had stitched in the trees and restitched using the called for DMC green...  and went back to the first house and un-stitched the called for dark green DMC from the top and bottom and restitched with CC's Steamed Broccoli, the floss I am using for the pine bough decoration under each house.  There is only a single tree left on the bottom row which I will stitch CC/DMC/CC so there is continuity.  I kept looking at the "Jolly Holly" and it just didn't sit right - the colour was on the blue side and all the greens in this piece are on the yellow side..... I have looked ahead and see some other changes I am going to make, but will talk about them as I get to each house.

That is going to be a wonderful Christmas design. Do you have a favorite "Pine green" color? I am always looking for one when I do Christmas designs and I really don't have a favorite.

It looks amazing.

I hate having to pick out but it is better to do that and change colors that are bugging you rather than have to see it forever and then wish you had done something. Does that make sense? it is early in the am here in Alabama. I am often changing colors and patterns to suit me. Those graphs are just a suggestion aren't they???:)
