Here’s the progress I’ve made so far on Winter Rose Manor. There have been a couple of days that I haven’t touched the needle! I need to do better.
I had ordered pink/peach floss from Colorado Cross Stitcher and it arrived yesterday. None of the ones that arrived are exactly what I’m wanting. There’s still floss to arrive from Roxy Floss Co. and I’m hopeful one of those will work for the house.
I love this project so much and I think that’s why I’m so determined to find the perfect color for the house.
On Winter Rose Manor, I am just about done with the vine and flowers in the upper right hand corner and down the left side. (I’ve had very little stitching time.) This vine is one of my favorite parts of the design.
Probably will continue with top border before bottom border.

I’m getting closer to the house (working from the left) and having thoughts about the Conch. I was pretty sure it would work but as I get closer I’m starting to wonder….lol Right now enjoying going back and forth from the bushes, the snow, and the fence. Haven’t spent as much time on it as I would like as I’m trying to balance how much handwork I can do and not have too much pain in the morning. I think I’m okay as long as I don’t do hours in a long stretch in the evening. I also taped all my working pages together and now that house looks huge!! lol
I hope all my bellyaching about the house color hasn’t caused your second thoughts. It is big and I think that’s another reason I want the color to be perfect. Good luck. Let me know what color you’re using when you get to the house stitching.

Lol….it’s not you, it’s me! I’ll report back when I figure it out! 🙂

Judy, maybe you should be a rebel and make your house red and the door pink… I know you already have your door stitched, but I also know you love red houses. Maybe that’s why none of the pinks feels just right? Whatever you decide, your project will be beautiful!
You’re right. I probably should have done that to start with. If none of the colors I have already ordered work, I may just do that! Thanks!
