A WIP and a question...

Good morning friends. I am currently stitching on Where Flowers Bloom from a Schoolgirl's Work book. But, alas I am not loving these colors specifically the blue. I am using the recommended colors of which the blue is called Dublin Bay by Crescent. However, the trees/leaves are this same color with the petals being the same color as the birds on the house. Of course the picture looks nothing like this in the book. I even have emailed Alma of Blackbird to inquire if this was the correct color (which I hope she won't take the wrong way) I haven't heard back yet. What do you think? Is there anyone stitching this particular piece? If you were stitching this piece would you change the colors? Suggestions would be welcomed!

Rovaris Necklace Finish

I finished my Rovaris necklace kit last night, a very easy piece to do except for sewing the fabric and felt onto the metal necklace. That part was quite fiddly to say the least. However, I think it turned out okay. I like that everything charms, necklace frame thread, tassel and cording came in this kit. The only drawback, no clear instructions in the kit. It is stitched over two with one thread. Thanks to Gwen from Guava Gems . Scroll down a bit and you can see her finish. Thanks Gwen!

I have a few things I would like to offer up as giveaways, so stay tuned. The kids are all to school and I am having a peaceful moment! I am getting ready to stitch on some projects out the The School Girls Work book by Blackbird, such a great book! I am hoping to start that this week. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great week.
