progress picture already!

Well, this is the work I have done on this piece in the past two days! I have been going to town. I even had to do some frogging, on the 3 flowers on the upper left hand area, if you scroll down to my previous picture you can see the flower is one square away from the border, well it is supposed to be touching the border like it is here, so I had done a bit more of the flowers than you see in the previous picture and I started working on the border and got to the top and realized it wasn't lined up properly and figured it out, so I had to go back and take those lil' flowers out and redo them. It didn't take too long!
To answer you Faithann, This piece will only be about 8x10 when finished, this is the top half of the piece. This is what it will look like when finished:
Sorry it is crooked, I took it off the magazine I am using for the pattern and they had the picture tilted on a little pedistal, so it looks slanted because it is that way in the picture. So, you can see I am about half way done. It is by ursula Micheals, one of my favorite designers, it was featured in The Cross stitcher Magazine, June 2005 issue. I am stitching it on 18 count Aida. I loved the colors too, and the symetricalness of it. and it sorta has a bit of busyness to it. I have been playing with the idea of doing another one, with reds and grays, and a third with another color scheme, but we shall see if that shall fit in the grand scheme of my stitching agenda for the year, I'm sure I could squeeze it in, but we shall see how I feel when I finish it if I want to move on or if I'm up to the challange of a color conversion. Well, that is all for now, just wanted to show you my progress on this one.
Thank you also Von for commenting!

This is lovely and would be a good project to do for my best friend as she likes these sagey green and soft purple/mauves.

Thanks for posting a picture of the full project, Lana - it's nice to see what the final version is going to look like. You're going great guns right now - the progress is looking great :)
