"Margaret Ann Klinedienst" from Queenstown Sampler Designs

A complex chart! The stitcher has to pay attention as the flowers are stylized and irregular; the border appears to repeat but sometimes is slightly different from one to the next. Very pleased with the result, though!

Worked on Zweigart Belfast Linen (32-count) in "Light Mocha". I found that the DMC substitutions given for the NPI silks used in the model were considerably darker, therefore did not give the effect of the model. I substituted the following for the original DMC colors for a more "faded" look --

320 Pistachio Green Medium --> 369 Pistachio Green Very Light
367 Pistachio Green Dark --> 368 Pistachio Green Light
500 Fern Green, Dark --> 522 Fern Green
562 Jade, Medium --> 3816 Celadon Green
677 Old Gold, Very Light --> 712 Cream
729 Old Gold, Medium --> 676 Old Gold, Light
834 Golden Olive, Very Light --> [same]
841 Beige Brown, Light --> 543 Beige Brown, Ultra Very Light
926 Gray Green, Medium --> [same]
945 Tawny --> 951 Tawny, Light
951 Tawny, Light --> [same]
3021 Brown Gray, Very Dark --> 3787 Brown Gray, Dark
3045 Yellow Beige, Dark --> 422 Hazelnut Brown, Light
3046 Yellow Beige, Medium --> [same]
3047 Yellow Beige, Light [from 772] --> 842 Beige Brown, Very Light
