Another one!

I have finished the stitch guide for the Cool Cardinal!  The design is by Charley Harper and the canvas by Treglown designs.

Another Finish

I finished the Spartan Iris.  I did take out the yellow on the front left side.  Just did not like it as my eye went right to those!  I also added the iris beards.  The instructions called for 3 colors of thread to create them but I had some Estaz in just the right color so they are actually fuzzy!  This 4.5 wide x 7 in tall design is ready to frame.

Front left

 The rest of the front petal is done.  I am trying to decide if I like all the yellow highlight!

And, the left petal is stitched.  A lot of color in this one!  Just  a few left to go!

The center

The center is finished.  I have started the left outside petal and it is split stitched all the way around.  That is the first step of each petal, by the way.  I have started working from the edge in to the center....this one will have a dramatic color change.

I am working the center petal.  Did not get it done, but a lot of it is.  Nine colors in this petal.

A top petal

I stitched two of the top petals.  The one on the top right is a lot lighter and appears to wrap around from the back.  The one next to it is a lot darker.
