Oh No She Didn't

I was so excited, I thought I finished Simply Live on my birthday but yesterday morning while patting myself on the back I noticed that I missed two of these little four diamond thingies that are scattered around the words. So in fact I was 8 stitches shy of a finish but that's ok.
And so that Lisa does not have to take responsibility for my color choices--I'm not thrilled with the blue I chose for the words- here are the colors I used in my conversion:
P8-CC Plum Paisley
P11-CC River Rocks
P10-DMC 316
P2-GAST Dried Thyme
P7-DMC 4240
P5-WDW Schneckley
P6-DMC 433
P12-WDW Chestnutt
P1-CC Just Rust
I really struggled with the DMC 4240. I think if I did it again I would cut away the purple parts of the thread and go with just the blues I just didn't think about it at the time and I really wasn't in the mood to frog and honestly I love this particular DMC Colour Variations thread.
I'm so excited to have a finish, it's been forever!
Thanks for all the birthday wishes.
Don't forget to head over to Missy Ann's for her 13 Days of Halloween giveaway!

It's a great finish and I think it looks wonderful with your color changes. Thank goodness you caught those few remaining stitches. I stitched a piece and forgot to put in the birds legs on one side of the piece. Did I see it? Of course I did - after it was framed! LOL Congrats on your finish.

Congrats on the finish! It looks great. I wasn't too thrilled with the purple bits in my version either.
