I do LOVE this pattern. I just happened to be in my LNS the day the girls were unpacking it and it captured my attention. It's different and the designer (Turquoise Graphics and Designs) is new to me as well. I started this a few months ago and put it aside because I ran out of Gold Leaf (ST) and it took some time to match the dye lot....many skeins were darker than the original one I bought and I had too much done to change anything. I did choose to change the red and pink that the chart called for and am so pleased with my result. The center was rather tedious to stitch as the colors changed frequently and the pattern was close together. Now that I'm nearing the end, I do still LOVE it. This will probably be framed..so all I need to do next is to pick a special place to hang it!
Thank you all for your kind, encouraging comments. I look forward to hearing from you :)
Hugs and Stitches, Mary
