Color Variation

It’s been all hand work this week. Here’s the progress I’ve made on the penguins.

I’m a little disappointed that the colors are a bit dull. As close as I can figure, the designer used a different brand of floss to stitch the original piece, and the conversion to DMC wasn’t quite on the mark.
If I had realized it before I started I could have made some changes. As it is I will stick with the colors in the pattern.
Here’s the project as shown in the book.
