Update on Fairy Tale Baby

Here is my progress picture on Fairy Tale Baby - it's a fun project to stitch on, and it's been the only thing I've stitched on since I started it. The baby is 3 months old already (in my defense, her parents didn't pick it out until after she was born).

I've made a couple of modifications to it - the face on the clock and the white on the wallpaper weren't stitched in the original pattern. But I didn't like the "negative" space aspect to it. I'm not one who needs the whole thing to be solidly stitched, a lot of patterns obviously call for unstitched areas. But on this one since the whole frame area was stitched (except that area) I thought it looked funny. The other thing is the stars (which you can barely see in the sky because of the angle) are also unstitched, and I'm going to fill them in with white as well.

The other thing I'm going to change is the lettering in the middle (which will be the baby's vital statistics - birth date, time, weight, length, name, parents' names, etc) is supposed to stitched in blue. But since it's for a girl, I'm going to use a dark pink color. Stereotypical, I know, but since there are both blue and pink in the design, I think it will work.

Thanks for checking it out.

It looks great and I love your idea for filling the negative space. Especially since the whole framed area is solid.
