When there are only a few stitches of a certain color thread, I usually leave them until I can finish them all up at once. In this case the broom handle and the birds' beaks are the only places that use DMC 435. So I waited until I was ready to stitch the broom handle to finish up the birds' beaks.
I have also started on the last skein (of three) of Bark, added some chimney pots, and started the roof of the broom garage. After the garage and house is finished there is a riot of confetti stitches at the base of the house that look like fall leaves.
