Color Key Boo Boos

I wish I could blame these errors in the color keys in Dimensions! on my printer or someone but I can't. I made the typos and I apologize for having done so. There always seems to be a few typos in every book but why, why, why did it have to be in the color key? I finally discovered my main problem. I had two lists of colors, one of the bead colors and another with color information for my printer. I accidentally used the printer's numbers in some of the color keys (Hummingbird Buffet and Garden Gate for example).

On the Mariposa pattern some confusion was caused because I list #769 for the dark brown used in the branch. I have been informed that this bead was previously #750. Why did the company change this number? I haven't a clue.

I'm happy to report that the following seem to be correct: SLOT MACHINE, FLOWER BASKET, MARIPOSA, FLOWER CART, LADYBUG and ONION DOMES. Do I hear a smattering of applause because I did a few correctly???

DB #518 = #782
DB #464 = #380
DB #4665 = #69

DB #138 = #651
DB #360 = #984
DB #363 = #655

One of my on-line beading buddies teased me by saying I did this on purpose becaue she knows I feel everyone should choose their own colors to add their own artistry to the piece. Trust me, I didn't! This is terribly embarrasing and I am now going into the garden and eat a worm!
