Iris Flower Panel - post #1

I'm on a roll with doing whatever I want this year, haha. I started yet another Chatelaine project, the Iris Flower Panel. It's a companion piece to the Cattleya Orchid Flower Panel I finished a few years ago. I decided to start this one when I ran across the kit in my 'future projects' box. Plus I've decided that irises are special to a fictional couple I enjoy writing about, so... this is for them. Haha.

I'm converting the iris at the bottom from shades of light blue to a darker purple color, because a) I like purple and b) my couple's irises are purple sooooooo...

Anyway, I started on Sunday! Here are my progress pictures for each day.

 

Yes, I went a little crazy today. Took a day off work and pretty much stitched all day. Let me tell you, it does wonders for your stress levels... I feel better than I have in ages!

The fabric is PTP Truffle Belfast - it's a little pinker than the photos show. Should be a really nice contrast for the purple iris. :3
