On the home stretch


All the rows are now completed, and I've made a few subtle changes in color to add some visual interest.

In the wreath and tree rows, I've switched over to two new shades of Trio. "Shamrock" is a little lighter than Felicity's Garden "Evergreen," which I'd been using so far, and also more of a yellow-green. For the red, I used "Bordeaux," which is the next shade darker than "Really Red" used elsewhere. Each of these threads has been worked in mosaic stitches.

With these slight changes, the piece retains its "country" feel and is still red, green and off-white in color scheme--just not so "flat" in appearance. On to the heel and toe!

You really do have turbo needles.. well done! The brighter colors are the perfect touch.

Just enough subtle variation to keep it interesting!
