What would you do????

Well, I've found my camera!  And now I need some advice...I appreciate any comment on this. 

Here is my progress on Blackbirds Anniversaries of the Heart.  While I will need to rip out part of I am one stitch off...ugh.  I added an extra one...but that is not my concern.  My concern is color.  I must have gotten the most muted batches of these colors!  I am stitching with the colors used in the design but see how different mine are?  The roof on the house, the front face of the house, the peacock?  I've checked and recheck labels to make sure I'm not losing it..=)   Click on any photo and you can zoom in on it. 

So what would you do?  Leave it?  Order another batch of these colors and see if the dye lot is different?  Use other colors...any suggests?  I like the neutrality to this design, but I'm not loving some of the colors that should be standing out more..does that make sense?  Any suggestions are more than welcome.  Thank you in advance!

In the mean time, I'm on to the second chart...this one is working out well for me so far.

I also wanted to share my little bluebird.  I stitched him up quickly last weekend while teaching an embroidery class.  I'm trying to figure out what to do with him next.......

And finally....these are the last designs I don't have claimed in my give-a-way.  Please contact me...if I don't hear from the winners I will repost these next week.
