After frogging this three times and trying 4 different combinations of colours I think I finally have this mini floral on the right track. Thankfully it is stitching up nice and fast as it is for Christmas.

Flowers in Focus - The World of Cross Stitching Issue 190 - Gerbera

This is the first of a set of three florals I am doing for a gift. You can see the three I am going to be working on in THIS post.

I really like how this is looking now and the colours are blending nicely together. Hopefully the yellows for the centre will look alright based on the keys or I will have to change those as well. When it is all finished I will post the magazine it is from and the colour changes I made in case anyone else would like to stitch this one in these colours.

Have a great day :)


  1. The pinks you ended up with look lovely and worth the trouble you went through to select them :)
