TIF February challenge

Progress has been slow this month on my TIF challenge but now I have started the surface stitching things should look up from now on.
I am trying to stay within the colour choice and so far I have been successful---I have silk ribbons and buttons and lace motifs that will come within the colour range so things should work out ok.
I am hoping to have this finished by the weekend but I have a busy schedule this week so time will tell.

Even though these would not be colors I'd choose, I really like how they go together here. I'll bet when you're finished it will be stunning....it already shows signs of that.

As usual Doreen, you're doing a lovely job with this piece, I love your choice of stitches and embellishment, looking forward to seeing it finished.

Very pretty Doreen! Great use of the colour choices. I have to agree with Janet that they aren't colours I would choose if on my own, but they do work together.
I'm working away on mine & hope to post an update tomorrow.

Looks great so far Doreen, loved your Feb postcard too. I'll have to get cracking on my TIF I'm a bit slow this month.

Hi Doreen!
I really like your choices of fabric and trim. The way in which you've positioned the colors makes each one sing while bringing harmony to the whole!

Now these are colours that I WOULD choose! I love the blue/gold/orangey colours which go so well together.
