I finished this little sampler Thursday evening, using the recommended GAST and WDW floss and substituting additional WDW floss for the DMC as follows:
DMC 436 > WDW Bright Leaf
DMC 469 > WDW Ivy
I did eliminate the bees from the design since I thought a little more negative space was needed. Samplers, in my ever so humble opinion, need to breathe.
