So, about Turtle Doves. For one thing, I bit off more than I could chew in a short month! For another, the linen I picked was too light for the doves to stand out. I have done this several times now on various projects, picking linen that is too light in color for the image to show up! Argh! But I had already done a bit of the stitching that I am happy with, the words and flowers, and I do love the linen. So I found a darker gray for the doves and I will pick it out and go with the darker doves on the lighter linen. But I can't do it right now! Anyway-see what I mean about the dove being too light?
Next month I will do something manageable! I didn't think I had anything for the lights theme but then look! I do! I LOVE Mill Hill kits! They are so satisfying to stitch!
