Revised colors : )

I started this TT, finished a square, took it into the dining room, AND decided the colors didn't match anything.

Thx to GF's Melody & Elaine [without blogs!!!] I have a shoebox full of Perle Coton #5s. I removed the dk blue and changed to DMC208-purple. I removed both greens and replaced with DMC 3346, 3347 & 3348.

I have not decided on the pink (dmc 604) or lt purple (dmc 210) for the outside border. The yellow circles need a center ... maybe pink? and there are squares needing to be filled ... maybe lt purple?


Myrna stitched this same design in Pink Floral color choice on ivory TT cloth. It is so beautiful. I think Myrna has 8-9 tabletoppers already completed!! A beautiful collection - IMO.

The colors are so beautiful. I never did your email about the emery. I just replied your email you sent today. You need to check the spam folder, just in case it ended up there.

I just love lavenders and lemons together they always look so crips and fresh, and this is such a pretty design.

Good luck switching out the rest of the colors in your topper as you go, it's looking great. I really admire people who can change colors around, I have no ability to visualize anything that isn't already done and in front of me.

Your earlier posting of both Gameboard and Angel looked wonderful. Nice progress on both of them.

Very pretty! This will be beautiful when completed. where do you buy tabletoppers to stitch? Anyplace online?

I think the colors you switched out for really work with the design. I'm glad that you have so many supplies to be able to do this easily with pearl cotton.
