Love with a Capital L January Progress

Hello!  Here is my January start on Love with a Capital L.  While I love how the colors work together in the border and decorative elements, I felt the pumpkin was too pale in the text (see Patient and Kind).  So I skipped around the chart, until I could find a better color.  And I skipped the big capital L (top left) because I want a highly variegated thread for that.  I am considering Caron Waterlilies "Hot Peppers".  Is anyone familiar with that colorway?
I'm happy with my new start; I worked on the first 3 pages though none are complete.  Eventually I did find a better color for the text: Gloriana Silk in Copper.  This will be a focus piece for February since it is all about Love.
