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.
