I have been a fan of Teresa Layman's kits for awhile now. I have blogged about her kits in a previous post. This particular kit came with the printed canvas and no floss but a list of floss colours used in the example. I delved into my ribbon and floss drawer and came up with some shades that I thought would suit my project more than the colours Teresa had suggested in her instructions. I also decided that I would use colours that I already had instead of going and buying a number of new colours. I changed the baskets to brown as I felt that they would go nicely with a wood floor. I also eliminated one of the large grape leaves to incorporate a bunch of green grapes as well as the purple. I have almost completed the inner section and am now trying to decide if I will actually do the outer border or use this carpet in front of my dollhouse sink or inside a doorway. Yet to be decided.....my guess is others modify kits or class projects to suit their own taste and mini decor! Or, does everyone want to replicate the original?
