I did make one substitution. One of the patterns called for a DMC#5 perle "trellis" with a smyrna star in the center of Tiara. Well, my Tiara must have been from very very old stock because it just about disintegrated in my hands. So rather than get all fussy over it, I decided to use the Waterlilies silk instead. I love how it turned out.
Sorry about that shadow. I still haven't a clue how to take a decent picture. Sigh.
