I found designer Brenda Gervais and her beautiful patterns last year. I started purchasing her monthly word play patterns and I have started stitching. I converted fancy floss colors to DMC or picked DMC that I liked and started. The DMC colors are 775, 3777, Blanc white, 3829, 976, 3826, 3721 and 3033. 18 count Aida fabric in antique white was utilized. I am very pleased with the outcome.
