Tin Topper SAL

I joined Nancy and Rita from STO in a tin topper SAL. I've never made one before, so I thought it would be a fun thing to do. So, over the weekend I started stitching my tin topper using the chart I just purchased from the new shop. It's called A Pansy for Pam. I totally changed all the colors to hand-dyed threads I've never used before: Cottage Colors (very luxurious), Carrie's Creations, and The Dye Is Cast. I used DMC to do the backstiching. Using light sand 32ct Belfast Linen, this is what I came up with 7 1/2 hours later:

I like that you made color changes to it. The original colors don't exactly scream 'pansy' at me. :)
