Laura mentioned that this variation of her design used a lot of metallic. Well, I started having heart palpitations from more than exciting tennis when I realized that I was close to the end of my silk lame braid. I finished with a mere 9" of that fiber left. Whew! I know I have more of that color at the shop, but I wanted to finish this today.
In the past few days I also discovered that other bloggers were stitching this mini-mystery. Go see their color selections at: http://www.lizartblog.blogspot.com/; http://www.pinsneedles.wordpress.com/; and http://www.nuts-about-needlepoint.com/ It's great to be able to see how different designs look with different color combinations.
And tomorrow Laura says she's going to begin another mini-mystery.
