Swan Diving

My start of Chatelaine’s Swan Lake aka Mystery 14. I’m stitching as charted (so far) on 28ct. Light Blue jobelan. And loving it.

I think the fabric color is truest in the first picture, threads truest in the third. There is a crystal for the center but I am considering substituting a mother of pearl button with a swan painted on it. I would lose the pulled eyelets because of the size of the button, but I don’t think I really care.

    OMG – STOP IT. You must stop stitching this right now. Seriously. You’re gonna kill me if you don’t. The only thing worse would be if you started Marie Antoinette too. On that yellow fabric…ugh! I die.
