Just started and I realized I don't really favor the look of the dark terra cotta. Something just turns me off to it. I'll leave what I've already stitched of the color in but am changing all of the color in the border. I choose DMC 315 dark antique violet. I can already notice a difference with the dark terra cotta already in the work. My eye isn't drawn to it right away. I am a tad concerned that I didn't choose a shade that will allow the center colors of the work to stand out once done. I liked that about the design.
