I was very worried this would look too muddy. I had to convert the pattern from Anchor to DMC and there's no exact colour-to-color match. I do think I made the wrong choice on a couple of colors, but it looks like it turned out OK for the most part. I might do it again, considering how easy it was.
This is a good beginner pattern, I think. I generally don't like complete-fill, but in this case, I won't be too picky. This was on 24-count, but would look good on 28 or even-weave. I'm thinking I'll fray the edges a bit and put it in a floating frame.
