This hankie will be a challenge! I am not sure at all about what colour to tat the border. Michelle has generously included (with all the other goodies above) a ball of #80 Star variegated lilac thread that is a good match for the centre.
I played around with #80 threads that I have and the white is Cebelia #20. I also have Cebelia white in #30.
Pictured also is pink Star, from Isdihara. The light green and light pink are Olympus #80. The yellow and the red are both DMC #80.
Colour is one thing. The pattern is quite another matter. With #80, I am not sure what type of pattern to choose. I have not tatted with such small thread in quite a while, other than small projects. This could prove to be confronting!
I want to do justice to Rose-E's hankie, so if you have an opinion as to how to approach this complex hankie, help me out, please!
Funny about the colours... I received the most beautiful peonies on the weekend that are lilac, pink, white and an intense saturated fuschia:
One more thing:
