A Doily of a Different Color: Marie's Cherokee Roses

Marie Read sent me this picture of a gorgeous doily she made from my Cherokee Roses doily pattern. 
I love her choice of colors! She used Aunt Lydia's Antique White for the center, Olive for the leaves & Passionata for the roses. 
It gives the doily a whole different look and feel from the original:
I used Aunt Lydia's Shades of Pink for the roses in mine, and Knit-Cro Sheen Shades of Green for the center and leaves. 
Marie said her doily was a lot of work to make, but I think she did an excellent job! 
Thank you for sharing your picture, Marie!
I have not yet heard back from the winner of my Stash Buster Plus contest, 

Alicia Morris
If I do not hear from her by Oct. 22, I will select a new winner, so be sure to check back.

Thank you, Elisabeth, Wal, and Mindy! I love to see the differences changing colors can make, too!
