Nearly - was missing a colour

Well I worked away, when I had a free moment, on one of my mini projects that will be a Christmas present. I nearly got it finished, however I was missing a colour so I picked that up today and hopefully this will be completed tonight. I am very happy with how it looks.

Flowers in Focus - The World of Cross Stitching Issue 190 - Gerbera

And I started the next one which is a lily. The outer areas of the petals are white which is difficult to see in this picture but I think it is looking well. The pinks are the same in this as the one above so I just used the same conversion.

 As the colours I am using look pretty much like the ones used in the original image, I am beginning to think that the thread numbers in the key are wrong, but I wouldn't be positive. The colours used in the key looked all wrong when I stitched them though.

Have a great day :)

  2. Very pretty!! :) I agree some designs seem to have incorrect key numbers and I often wonder if it is another thread I dont use!! :)
