So here is where I was when I posted my progress on this project on Wednesday. House done – started the pot of flowers; I still am undecided if I’ll go back and stitch in the windows but I probably will.
So in addition to changing up the colors, I clearly decided to change up part of the design as well since I didn’t stitch the pot as charted. There should be a double row of zig zags – one above the one I did but I got carried away filling in the black and by the time I noticed it decided I could just make a design change so continued the way I had started. So it looks like I have one row of zigs and little flowers on top of each point.
I also added more colors to pot which were supposed to be back and maybe a brownish color – drab. I like my Spring looking pot. The color around the crows I picked was Sockeye. The called for was a very carrot orange but to me the chart looked more coral/pinkish so this is exactly what I was looking for. I think I should be able to get the rest of the motifs done tonight and start on the borders.
