Turning Over a New Leaf

I finished off the Bride's tree ornament. It is very sweet. I wasn't sure I would like the beads on the nest but they are okay. I was worried the beads would be too large but they are fine. The over all size is about 3 1/4 inches square. I still am not sure how to finish it. So it can sit on a pile for a while. I got the twirly vine on the English Tapestry Sewing Box finished. I also got a little flower done. This project is reminiscent of a William Morris design. I wanted to get to the big leaf below the flower. Unfortunately, it is not meeting up properly so I have to find where I am off.
My bathrooms are clean. My next big project is to wash the walls and ceiling in the kitchen. UGH. Not my favorite way to spend the day.
Miscellaneous thoughts:
I would like to make the Thistlewood project through Shining Needle Society but I don't like the purple. Mauve or teal would be much better colors.
I love the Rovaris Pendant on Guava Gems blog. It's on my wish list.
Next up on the stitching front is In the Sweet By and By by La-D-Da. I like the English Tapestry Sewing box colors so I may use them on this project.
Have a great day!
