New challenge!!!

So last night I found my new challenge.

It's thread crochet again, but it's a doily with coloured flowers. 
I've never attempted colour changes on thread before and this has the main colour and 4 others.
There are 3 colours of flowers that alternate, and the green that gives the feeling of leaves for them.
So we shall see how it turns out.

This is how far I had got last night. Another 2 rounds to do then I start on the colour changes!!
I hope it goes ok.

I'm using a 1.75mm crochet hook and I think size 10 thread.  My colours are in size 8 as that's all I had, so I'm not sure how that's going to affect things either ... we'll see!!!
I do have a green in size 10 and a lighter green in size 8 ... not decided yet which to use.

I can see it looks uneven in the picture, but once I pull all the loops where they're meant to be, it does look ok.

Updates to follow soon!!

Take care everyone.
