Now I'm back to cross stitch. I fogot to mention the colors I used in Halloween town. I used the suggested DMC for the black(310) and green(3052). I am interested in trying Sullivan floss for the black as the DMC didn't cover as well as I would have liked. The leaves and pumpkins were stitched with Weeks Dye Works "Copper" I did soak this quite a bit as it ran when I tested it. For the moon , I used GA "Grecian Gold." I used a very soft yellow for the pumpkin faces and the windows. I hope this information helps if you want to add color to Halloween Town.
I made quite a change in Part 3 of the LK Mystery Sampler. The house was suppose to be purple. I changed it to GA Wood Trail. I didn't want a purple house. The purple looked good but just not my taste. I'm also using Wood Trail for some of the Cadet Blue color in the sampler.I got some new stash today from JJ's so I want to get this sampler done.
I have a question about a CC color, Calico Kitty. The one I got had lots of tan variegation in with the red. If you have used this color, is that typical? The Christmas Garden by BBD calls for lots of this color and I'm not sure about the tan. Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks. Hope everyone is having a good week. Lots of things in the news today that have me concerned.
Part 3 as it stands today.
