    I plan to start this one soon and I was also planning on changing the colors. This will really help me figure out a color scheme. It’s gorgeous by the way.

      Thanks! If you decide to do your own colors, I highly recommend you pick up one of the DMC thread color cards. It was an enormous help to me. 🙂
