4th Day of Christmas
By Margaret Sherry
This month is moving way too fast. I'm a full week behind on all of my stitching. This lady is awesome! ! Like my other days she is outlined in darker shades of the colors used. I of course made mistakes, but some I just rolled with.
For instance, I had stitched the perfect 4. At least I thought that I had. As I was organizing my outline colors, I realized I had stitched it in the wrong color. Then I discovered I had used the shade for my number for the legs. I already had a bad headache, but really wanted to try to finish my outlining. I left the color of the legs alone. I frogged the number, and stitched it in the shade that was for the legs. Yes, I switched them. Of course between my head pounding, and my husband distracting me, I goofed stitching the number. I just left it, and evened it out before adding the backstitching.
I'm happy with her. She stitched up so fast, and has style. I wanted to give these some individuality, and she has it!
Happy Stitching, and may the frogs stay far away!

I have been a bit behind on all my Twelve Days stitching but now I am all caught up and even ahead! Yay!
I have finished Day Three: Three French Hens for March.
... and Day Five: Five Gold rings for May (although to be fair, this block was finished in January for a FB challenge).

I make my own through mistakes that I leave in, and work around. Thread colors that I change because I don't have it. Or in the case of the beret in this month's chart, I have just chosen to use Very Dark Pewter Grey rather than Black.
I've also chosen to use more color in my "Backstitching" to highlight. I used Very Dark Pewter Grey, Very Dark Salmon, as well as the Dark Coffee Brown that is charted.
Margaret Sherry's French Hen is simple in it's design and colors. It's been fun to stitch, and very relaxing.
Here is a picture I pulled off the internet of her design.

Here's my "Christmas lights" theme- Snow Fun by Mill Hill!! It's too bad the crystal beads don't show up better in the picture- it's really pretty in person!
This was a quick stitch for sure- I just love Mill Hill Kits!! Now I can check this off my list and attend to all my other March goals!

2 Turtle Doves designed by Margaret Sherry.
That said, I goofed placing it onto my fabric. I started way too high. My title had to be stitched underneath.
I changed a couple of colors to something very close that I had. I also added color to my outlines.
I think that it came out pretty good inspite my mistakes.
