Hermitting Weekend Proess

I continued work on Harvest Blooms and am closing in on a finish.  Though I spent most of Sunday binge watching Mr. Selfridge, I did manage to finish most of the gold leaf in the flowers.  I still have the pecan and dark chocolate to stitch.  After that, it's just two stars and some confetti.  I will have to decide whether to rip out the brown shadow on the pumpkin and replace it with the cranberry, as charted.  Probably will. It irks me that I misread the symbols but I am not sure I'll like the cranberry any better.  Maybe pecan or terra cotta.  I'll have to do a floss toss.

You made great progress! I am not sure of that shadow either... Hope you find something suitable!

Nice progess! I have to agree that the brown corner of the pumpkin looks odd, but I think you should leave it. It adds character to the piece that the pumpkin looks weird!

I love threads with names! So much more interesting than 971.

I think a more orangey shade would look better for the corner of the pumkpin myself.

What about just stitching that corner of the pumpkin in one shade darker of the Orange color? Or, even the same color? It's a really pretty piece!
