Gold Color Slight Change/ Christmas Issue

Hi Everyone,

My  sampler ornament in the recent JCS 2013 Christmas Issue has two colors of satin stitch flowers.   Viewing the graph in the magazine, you cannot tell which is which.  It is easy enough to explain.

The left side of each flower is done in the GFS #207 (darker gold) which is Gorianna Florimell Silk in satin stitches.   The right side of each satin stitch flower is done in Needlepoint Inc. #842 (lighter gold).

The flowers at the very top are down in cross stitch with GFS #207.  Hope you enjoy this little sampler ornament.  We are looking forward to this Christmas with my son and his wife and our two new miniature schnauzer puppies, Carmela, and Schultzie.  (I didn't know at the time of this submission that we would lose our beloved 17- year old "Sammy". )
