Still changing

...colors. 
 
Decided to do the lion in a gold/orange and the majority were either too bold or too close to the linen and unnoticeable.   Rebecca had mostly green threads and used them throughout, but I didn't want green lions.  For as small as this piece is I wanted a little more definition  Also changing the bottom's 503 to one of the other greens.  Not sure I will stitch all the hearts, maybe just one or two.  I was trying to finish before I totally lost interest but when I change the colors as I am stitching, I end up doing it two or three times.  But making those choices before I start usually doesn't work either especially using one strand.  The floss skeins look dark and shiny, but soften when actually stitched, so there are always changes with that idea too.  But close!  Usually only a few shades different from the floss toss, like I am in the right church but the wrong pew.
 
 
Ain't she sweet?  The bottom border is one full stitch off in width, and one thread higher.  Since both errors are in the same row, I may remove and re-do, but at this point probably not.  When it is hanging from a peg somewhere, I will certainly not notice.  But I may remove the barely noticeable flowers and do them a little brighter. 
 
Have a good weekend.

Rebecca is delightful and the shade you've used for the lion looks just right to me.

Very sweet sampler, I hate when I get bored with something I am stitching. I picked up a one color piece while I was waiting for fabric for something I wanted to do. I wish I had just read a book, because I have to finish the piece no WIP'S for me. Oh well, pouring again or rather still her in RI. Nothing like those poor people in other parts of the country, so I should not complain. Enjoy the weekend.

It's really pretty!!! OK, I'm curious as to what worked for you before with losing weight. The only time I managed to lose weight was after having a baby. And I can't use that method anymore. I used Slimfast -- and I'm lactose intolerant now!

Working that sweet sampler should make up for the sweets missing from your table.
Chin up you will succeed with both. Love this little piece...you are a whiz at
getting to the right pew.
