I finished the tree! :)


I think I will now just mark where I will start the names and call it quits for now on this one. When I began stitching this piece I had decided to use the dark green you see and a lighter green for the non-dark green lettering. I've decided I really do want to keep the shading as it was designed and therefore I need two shades of lighter green for the lettering. Lucky for me, it just means ordering a third color of Dinky Dyes silk, which is what I am already stitching with: 052, 051, 050 for the curious. 52 is this color you already see, and I needed to order 50, as I had originally planned to just use 51. Anyway, it is going to take a bit for the silk to arive and I am ready to move onto something else for a bit now anyway.

I think I will stitch on my Angel of Summer next as she is the closest to a finish in the WIP pile.

The tree looks lovely. I like the Dinky Dyes colours you picked too. I'm still undecided as to what colours I will use, but I think your idea is great!

Congratulations on finishing your tree - I stitched this last year and the names go much faster!

It does look great! And yes...wait for the right colors to come or it will be too hard to work on it because it just wouldn't be right in your mind!

Beautiful beginning! Haven't even been brave enough to buy the chart for this one.
