The violets continue to grow and bloom here! Well, the stitched violets anyway; despite the mild weather we've had, there is still a lot of snow outside, so no chance of violets blooming out there yet! I've made more progress on CCN's Spring Violets:
The colours are reading differently in this photo than the last progress photo since I had to use a different camera. The floss colours are reasonably accurate here, although the background fabric might not be quite accurate. The design is working up fairly quickly, though I will still have the relatively large border to do once I finish the centre portion. The more I work on this piece, the more I realize that the floss colours I actually have are quite different than what is depicted in the chart photo. The colours in the chart photo seem deeper and richer than the actual floss colours I'm working with. I'll see how the whole piece comes together once it's finished.
My fabric order for a couple other CCN/LHN designs arrived this week, so I must resist temptation to start anything new before I finish Spring Violets!
Time for some hockey and stitching. Thanks for stopping by!
