Will You Be My Friend?

 

My Letter F (F is for Friend) is finished.  Our 33 inch snowfall gave me the opportunity to stitch a lot.  I switched around some colors; already mentioned the hand.  The biggest change was the green dress to Hyacinth.   So that wouldn't stick out like a sore thumb I made the letter "F" and the flower Hyacinth as well. The other thing I enjoyed was changing the brick path between them from the same red as the houses to another color.  I let the color name inspire this switch; it was "Brick Path".  A no brainer, I know.  It seems to me that using lighter colors for the letters is helping them stand out more.  Colors used were Gentle Art Schoolhouse Red, Grecian Gold, Apple Cider, Avacado, Hyacinth, Blue Jay, Picnic Basket, Woodrose, Raspberry Frost, and Brick Path; Crescent Snowball and Black Coffee.
