by Prairie Schooler is coming along. There is a lot of work in the bottom portion so it will be a couple weeks before it's finished. I'm not happy with a two of the color conversions. The first is with the left side of the house. It's supposed to be a shade darker to add dimension to the house but it is actually lighter. The second is that there isn't enough contrasts in the grass to make the alphabet letters stand out. I won't change the house color but I will probably pull out the 2 letters I stitched and stitch them in something lighter. Even so, this is a nice spriny design which is fun to work on this time of year.

My mystery quilt 'mystery' has been solved. This month's installment included 2 steps. The written instructions and the drawings were switched. So I was reading the words for one step and looking at a picture for the other. I will snap a photo this afternoon.

Until then, I'm off.
