No Bees No honey progress
I thought I would show you my progress on No Bees, No Honey,by Birds of a Feather I am currently stitching this, and started during last week I have chosen to stitch it 1/1 on 32ct evenweave, I am using the piece I received from the WFC exchange and its called Highland, - its lovely to work on. I have changed a few of the colours as I didn't have them in my stash, but I do think my colour choices are OK, maybe the hive isn't as bright as it should be, but I prefer the colour I used. All the threads are hand-dyes a mixture of GAST, WDW, Heavenly Hues & Ozark Sampler and finally a DMC. Progress is a little slower on an evening as I don't use a magnifier, - no wonder I wear glasses LOL!! But I have been wanting to do this for so long and the urge took over, hopefully I'll have it finished by next weekend and then I will start back on my Neighbourhood RR.
EDIT NOTE: I have been requested to list what changes I made for the threads so here goes.
Leaves: Substituted with Celery - GAST and kept Advocado
Flowers - substitured with Heavenly Hues Carnation Kept Burnt orange
Hive - Substituted with Schneckley - WDW & Old Gold - Ozark Sampler
Writing - Schneckley -WDW and Kept Maple Syrup
Substituted Tropical Ocean with a similar colour I had in my stash but haven't a clue what its called and who its by.
