Request for help with an old Myart or Semco design.

I have received an email from a fellow-embroiderer, asking for some help with a project she is working on. Rather than me re-type it all, I am reproducing her email here, with one of the photos she attached, and if anybody reading this can offer suggestions, please do, by leaving a comment in the usual way. I am aware that many people who read blogs, cannot always respond by commenting, so if you are in that group, just email me direct, and I'll post your words here.
Hello Gina, I came across Patra's Place whilst looking for traced linen resources on the net. In Sydney there used to be a shop in George St that sold traced linens and threads. The lines were Semco, DMC and Myart. I bought a heap of them, runners and doilies and a few tablecloths. I've got all the charts (eg colours and stitch methods) for them all - except one of the tablecloths, which I've started... and now want to finish!!! This particular tablecloth is not pure linen - it must be some sort of poly/cotton mix because it doesn't crease and feels light and soft. I'm writing to you in case you or others of your stitching pals might know what this particular pattern is supposed to look like. For example, the blue daisies are inside a frame, and I don't know what colour this is supposed to be nor what stitch it should be done in. I've enclosed a coupla pictures of it in case you or your pals can help me!! I'd love to finish it!! If you'd like any pictures of other kits (Myart) that I've got just let me know!! Myart seems to have disappeared off the face of the earth, as does the embroidery shop in George St Sydney!
Many thanks in advance for any help you can give.

This is so fresh and delicate! I love embroidered pieces. Would like to do some myself someday.
