A Little Stitchin'

Gentle friends, well, I've finished up the grassy yard....

... and to do so was to make another 'executive decision" about colour.  As you may remember I've converted all the called for DMC floss to Belle Soie overdyed silks and the called for floss for the yard was the darkest blue-green.... will I started to stitch and it looked like a lake. That's not what it is by a long shot... so I frogged all the BG floss and dug around in my bag of green silks and found a green I could live with.... "Ivy League."  I 'm happy, the ducks are walking on grass and the little trees are planted in the ground.....only a week or so of stitching left and I'll have this sucker finished!!

Sarah is beautiful! You truly have an eye for color. I was starting to really worry about you....I kept looking a few times each day to see if you had posted but nothing. So glad to see a post this morning.

Great choice of color for the yard, looks great. Love the colors of the house.

The grass looks great Edgar. It is so interesting how many times the floss color does not look like the picture of the design. I guess stitchers just have to be flexible!

This is an amazing piece, Edgar. I have enjoyed following along as you've stitched it.

I love Sarah and your color selections are beautiful. I stitched her many years ago in the called for DMC. It was my only option at the time. I have enjoyed seeing her come to life again as you stitched her.
