WiPs Update

Oh my, time flies and it's been three weeks since I last post. I've been stitching but some I can't show you due to them being exchange pieces. Other than that, here are some WiP pictures...
Helen and Tama, as you can see, you're both right. The Told in A Garden design is indeed Voice of the Shepherd. Just the bottom part left and I'll be having myself another happy dance soon. Chiloe, I've contracted your fear of greens after stitching the trees. They are such a pain!
There has been more activity going on in my cross stitch kingdom as well. A couple of bluebirds have decided to move in.
I've also started another CCN design.
It was all Carol's fault. I saw her finished Gingerbread Cottage on her blog and couldn't resist starting mine. As you can see, Carol, I needn't wait to see yours framed up before giving in to the urge. It's stitched on Silkweaver's Sapphire Sky. The fabric is slightly lighter in real life. I'm loving the contrast of the colours on the fabric so far. Rather than stitching it on a neutral colour fabric, I decided on this because I think the blue really brings out the design. I've changed the colour of the flower into a deeper shade of cornflower blue however because the original colour is too similar to the fabric. In my opinion, it looks better this way.
I've also been working on Renée's RR but there's not enough progress to warrant a picture. I promise I'll post one next time.
Two posts ago, I asked for help in locating the charms used in The Drawn Thread's A Spot of Spring, A Spot of Summer, A Spot of Autumn and A Spot of Winter designs. Paula heard my pleas and not only direct me to where I can get them but she actually went to the trouble looking for them at her LNS and sending them to me, all at her own cost!
She also sent me a postcard describing Spokane, Washington a.k.a. "The Lilac City" where she lives and a skein of Weeks Dye Works' Lilac floss (how appropriate) ^.^ Thank you, Paula, for your kindness. It will never be forgotten.

Beautiful projects. They are all lovely, and such different styles they would be fun to rotate between depending on how yo're feeling. Love Gingerbread House on the Blue, the colors stand out wonderfully.

Hi Veronica! Seems like we have similar tastes in stitching :-) Looks like you're moving right along on Queen of the Needle. You have some lovely stitching here. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment on my blog. I'm adding yours to my list, so we'll be "talking" alot I suspect.
