You can see the original thread set on Needleartnut's blog.  She changed color.

She also talks about the stitches a bit.

  1. I am really dropping the ball...7 x 7 18 count mono, Anchor floss 185, Overdyed NN 135, # 8 Kreinik in 829, however I did change color....the number is the month she released it so 0396 is March of 1996....

  2. Thanks, Pat. I appreciate the clarification!
