I am stitching it according to the pattern using Carrie's Creation Hand-Dyed Floss in the Tropical Rainstorm color. I had forgotten how much I dislike stitching on black fabric, but the bright multi-colors of this wonderful floss reall do "pop" on the black. So far, I have had the little frog visit this piece 2 times. I did decide to stop stitching on the border and stitch the geomatric "knots" first so maybe my stitch count will be right on that part. If I could just count the threads right on this dark fabric, I would be half way through with it.
