Four Square Doily completed

This morning I decided that I definitely was going to run out of thread and started thinking about what color to make the last 2 rounds. I knew it would be very difficult to find more of this aqua, I haven't seen it in the stores except for the one time I bought this ball. So I looked in my tub of thread - light and dark shades of blues, greens, purples, yellow, peach, shaded yellow, variegated pastels, a woodsy variegated browns & greens,...I knew that white wasn't going to work, so thought about the yellow and peach, but not too sure. Then I decided to check out the variegated blue, purple, green; at first I thought it wasn't going to work either, but unwrapped several feet and ran the thread across the top of the doily, then I slowly pulled it across and looked at all the colors against the aqua, when I got to the greens I was surprised to find out that it was a perfect match. Tonight was Sit N Stitch at Michaels, and I worked on round 16, then after coming home I finished up round 17. It needs some serious blocking, which is scheduled for tomorrow afternoon.

What do you think?
