Would like to thank every one for their birthday wishes/cards/emails! Made my 44th birthday a very touching one.
On Monday I purchased a few things from 123Stitch and received them the other day. Don't know how they do it - but their things always arrive so promptly.
The floss is for the project I'm working on today. I couldn't find the conversions for the silk in Jingle all the Way. Figured I'd have the needed floss. :( - I don't. And I can't find a conversion for the color Cayenne by Crescent Color into DMC or another hand dye. Does anyone have a skein of Cayenne that they can color match for me and let me know? Or, if you have a conversion chart you could send me to. I have found many charts out here on the web but the color cayenne isn't on them.
And if I could pick your brain a bit more -- it also calls for Swamp linen by Colorscapes. Is that close to Copper Penny? I called my LNS and they didn't have any Swamp to compare.
I've been working on this ~
30ct Cocoa linen
Recommended hand dye flosses
Just an update - feeling much better and my knee (knocking on wood) is feeling better than it has in months! Woohoo! Chris mentioned I maybe should only talk about things I've done instead of my plans. Excellent advice that I'm ignoring once again.
Why?? Because my daughter and son-in-love are taking DH and I out to dinner tonight! It is our belated Mother's and Father's Day gift. How can a steak house be a mistake for a gift? It's not in my book. The boy is tagging along. He had made plans for this evening and when reminded about us going out -- those plans were amended in a heartbeat!
Switching topics - I try not to mention current news too much on here. But, I have to say the jury got it right last night. Let the healing begin.
Well, I'm off to stitch a bit more before getting ready for dinner.
Happy Stitching ~
