|Can you kind of see the sparkliness here?|
I mentioned earlier that I had converted many of the threads from DMC to overdyeds. I think it was worthwhile in some ways and kind of a waste in others. But if you're interested and thinking of using overdyeds for your own Winter Wind, here's my list:
White: WDW Whitewash*
422 Cream: WDW Straw*
640 Gray: Same
898 Dark Brown: WDW Chestnut
927 Light Blue: CC Petite Maison*
3023 Light Gray: Same
3362 Green: WDW Blue Spruce
3371 Brown Black: GAST Dark Chocolate
3768 Blue: Same
3777 Red: WDW Lancaster Red
3830 Pink: WDW Bluecoat Red*
3862 Brown: GAST Walnut
*If I ever stitch this again, I'd skip the overdyeds for these colors. Either the thread was used in such tiny amounts that using an overdyed just wasn't worth it, or because the color just didn't work. Like where I used WDW Whitewash. It appears yellowish in places. And yellow snow was really bumming me out... for obvious reasons. So after I put in a couple lengths of thread, I switched to good old reliable and uncomplicated DMC White.
And now I've put away winter and Christmas and I'm back to stitching my Moira Blackburn sampler. Here's where I left off in November, and I'm not much further along as of last night.
In other news, one thing has led to another and my daughter has an interview this week with a magazine she really wants to write for. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for her, and if some of you could keep your fingers crossed too, I'd sure appreciate it.
Last Friday's stitching with friends was cancelled because the weather wouldn't cooperate. If this keeps up, I'm buying a dog sled. I'll wrangle my neighbors' stupid collies into harnesses and yell MUSH. Because I love those ladies just that much!
