Home Sweet Home Stitching Complete!

 I finished stitching my welcome motif from the Home Sweet Home embroidery pattern.   

I used a variety of stitches. Stem Stitch, Double Knot Stitch, French Knots, Lazy Daisy Stitch, Long and Short Stitch and of course, Back Stitch:

Oh and I almost forgot - the Fishbone Stitch!  I used that for the biggest purple and blue flowers:

You might remember when I started this project I had quite the color palette planned.  

As it turned out, I did the majority of the project using these beautiful colors:

and didn't use any of the black, gray or charcoal!

I think there is a nice balanced combination of colors and nothing stands out too much:  

Here are the floss numbers of the colors I used:

It's so lovely, just beautiful. I love how the different texture of the stitches plays across the fabric. Although all the colors are pretty, I think the pop of pink is my favorite. Fabulous job!
