Dorothy page 7

Hi all!  Since I finished Summer Knotgarden, I've been stitching away on Dorothy Walpole again.  Last weekend, I finished the bargello band.  

Then it's taken me a week to do the strawberry band, all the leaves in the outside border and the strawberry band and the first two flowers.  Here's where I am right now.  

When I moved my snaps down the last time, I found a little hole.  Don't know if the fabric had it or it had help from a fur ball, but it was there.  Here's before


I made my attempt to fix it and I don't think it turned out too bad.  


Here's a picture with a little more distance.  I don't think it's too noticeable.

I'm hoping to finish this row of pages by the end of the month.  I participate in a Chatelaine SAL then and am pulling Watergarden back out.  Here's where it is right now.  


I have a little problem though.  I can't find my original chart, just my working copy and I don't have the directions.  I'm assuming the backstitch here is DMC 310?  Anyone have the chart and can help?

Thanks!

Dorothy is beautiful with all the different bands. You fixed the hole on a way I wouldn't see it if I didn't know where to look.
The backstitches around the golden gates are all DMC 310. If you have any questions just ask. I have the file of the chart saved somewhere in a Chatelaine folder.
