Messing with perfection

I should be flogged with 20 skeins of floss.  You know by now that I change many charts because
a) I prefer other colors
b) I don't like the linen
c) I want an easier stitch
d) I want less clutter
e) I am too lazy for its entirety
f) all of the above

But to change a Nash?  Polly has been bumped aside until this is completed which should be very soon.  I'll do the fill work while sitting outside.  I changed the linen from the gray to brown but am using the threads.
 
So what did I change in the design?  The top.  I love stitchery in heart shape, but not so much little hearts in a design.  See the row at the top in the light pink?  The red line is where the top border moved down and covered the hearts except for the bottom stitch which I covered with white.  I like it, more me.  I will probably move the dogs a stitch higher.
 
 
 
 
My friend is in a new house and I gave her two linen towels, one red, one gray.  Each has a large hand embroidered crab at the bottom.  She won't ever forget who they are from.
 
Have a great weekend.

I like the brown linen. As for your changes you make to patterns, floss, fabric, etc I expect them. If you did not change a thing I would suspect that you are heavily medicated and in need of an intervention. Keep changing it I love to read about them because I am too chicken to do it myself. Enjoy your day!!

Happy 1st of July..........I hope your 4th is very enjoyable.
You are a "pioneer", in my opinion, when it comes to cross stitching. I would never be so brave.

You are so daring, I get wild and sometimes change fabric . Then worry that the floss will not be correct! Have a Happy Fourth!

I like the changes. You are brave,I change colors but not usually designs, you just might be inspiring me. I like the idea of getting rid of all the little hearts.
