I started 'Ann Pennsylvannia Peacock on 35 ct, then quickly remembered why I don't like 35 ct: 2 threads = 2 thick, 1 thread = 2 skimpy. So I started Susan Rambo on 40 ct exemplar. Ahhhh...feels good! I am using the given DMC conversion - mostly. I always fall in love with the colors in the photograph which are not always the actual colors. The greens in this sampler are definitely soft blue-greens. I am trying 50, 501, and 502, but I am still playing with the combination. Please don't tell me how awesome silk threads are! ;) I am not ready to take that plunge!
Tomorrow morning, I will be drawing a name for the Sheepish Designs chart on the the previous post. Leave a comment there to be entered!
