New Start & Lily Update

I started yesterday a little project I've had my eye on for a long time: Falling Leaves, a freebie from the DMC website, using 3 of their color variations threads.

I'm usually not too keen on freebie patterns, I often find them too simplistic or cutesy, but this one really caught my eye, I love the colors (Sara there are some lovely greens, you are going to like that).

Anyway, here is the floss toss:

And progress after one day of stitching:

Finally, an update on Lily of the Valley:

Only the wings left before I put her aside until later. This pattern calls for Kreinik and beads which I don't have, so finishing her will have to wait until the next time I need to place an online order.

I remember seeing that particular DMC freebie. I think I have it in my stash somewhere. It sure is a pretty design. Good progress on Lily of the Valley. Can't wait to see her blinged up ^.^

I love Lily of the Valley, gorgeous flowers aren't they and your stitching is coming on really well.
Love the freebie too. Gorgeous colours.

That is a very pretty freebie! I agree, a lot of the times freebies don't appeal to me - but once in a while you find one that is just so pretty. I think you've found a gem!
