Quaker Virtues - Take Two

Well, I stitched, and I pondered. I didn't like the fabric with my silks. So after a fair amout of thinking, I scrapped my original plan.
Take Two on Quaker Virtues - New fabric, main silk the same, accent silk had to change too. I am much more pleased with this combination. Here is the progress for take two.
I am now using Sandcastle 36ct by Silkweaver and the silks are Belle Soie - Spring Violets and Lily Pad.

QV, 4 months

I've been taking a picture on the last day of the month to mark my progress on Quaker Virtues. A few other projects have inserted themselves into my stitching queue but I still love working on this one. Wow, this thing is really growing!

Quaker Virtues (4 months)

Since this photo I have finished one more motif and the squirrel. My 9 y.o. son likes the little squirrel but he really wants me to add a turtle somewhere in the design. What do you all think, should I attempt it?

My take on Quaker Christmas

Ok, here's my progress on Quaker Christmas... I'm playing with my colors a bit. I added Midnight blue. I just couldn't resist the bird being blue... am stitching on 32 ct 1/1
