Log Cabin~Winter Colors

This one has been fun to stitch! :) Hopefully I'll get it done in time for the online festival next month.

I'm going to be stitching all of the seasonal Log Cabin designs on the same Zweigart 18 count pale cream Aida. This one is slightly larger than the Autumn Log Cabin, with a stitch count of 190 x 190 and on 18 count it measures approximately 10 1/2" square.

I'm using HDF's silk floss for the model and this is the DMC conversion I'm using -

DMC 800 delft blue pl - HDF Fugue Blue #2239

DMC 799 delft blue md - HDF Fugue Blue #2241

DMC 798 delft blue dk - HDF Fugue Blue #2243

DMC 743 yellow md - HDF Koi Gold #4215

DMC 728 golden yellow - HDF Koie Gold #4217

I chose this blue because it really has a cool feeling to it and this yellow due to its having a warmth like firelight. Hope you like it :) Here are the first two seasonal log cabin blocks. I think they look well together.
