    Nichole, thank you for putting together this list! I am a long-time cross-stitcher and have nearly all the colors of floss. Now I’m thinking that I need more of these colors to make the wonderful flowers you showed us in today’s Papertrey News. I’ve been making my own flowers but want to try this pattern topo. I love it…you are always so clever, creative…and sharing!! It’s one of the many reasons that I LOVE PTI!

    Hello Nichole, I saw that Aqua Mist was not on the list when I went to Michaels. I found that #3811 is the one that I have found to match as closely as possible to it. Thanks so much for the list, it was a HUGE help 🙂
