Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thank you for all your kind comments for yesterdays post - I really do appreciate them all!!
I finished up February Cottage last night and got some less than great snaps of it. I did make quite a few changes in floss as I went along. When I first saw the colour palette I was not very enthused to say the least.... I got on my high horse and picked some much less bright shades of pink to stitch with.... then.. when it actually came to stitching the house my lightest shde of pink just faded into the linen and was sort of blah - so I went back to the stash heap and found some other choices to stitch with. I eventually landed with a brighter over dyed pink - WDW "Camellia" and kept one of my pink changes CC "Sea Shelley" - I also added a blue - WDW "Cadet" and another brownish/red WDW "Chrysanthemum." I did away with most of the white stitching (there was enough of that in January) and kind of did my own thing with this block.... here's a snap -
and here is a snap of both blocks....
I ordered the March Block - but the only over dyed floss called for is WDW "Pecan" the rest are DMC choices.... That makes me sad... i love stitching with over dyed floss.... I may just have to shift some of those floss' to bright green over dyed... I do like green!!
That's about it for today sports fans - thanks again for stopping by, do come again!!
