We leave tomorrow morning for the drive to St. Charles! I got the car all packed up last night, and miraculously even had room left over for Mike and Sophie. ;)
The dogs get a bit nervous when they know we're leaving...
I'm not sure why though.
Now, if I can only get the self-proclaimed cat-hater to tear himself away and get his bags packed and ready...
(Anja, if you're reading this, do you think Lutz and Mike would like a Bring-Your-Cat-to-Work day?)
I've gotten several requests via email and comments from some of you, hoping to get hold of Katrina's conversion for the 1837 Crown Sampler. With her permission, I'll post her color changes here, so compare them to the DMC listed on the chart to see where they belong. It should be easy to figure out! Thank you, Katrina, for sharing your conversion with us so generously! :)
In place of WDW Holly, she used WDW Juniper.
In place of WDW Confederate Gray, she used GAST Mountain Mist (more toward an aqua dye lot).
In place of WDW Oak, she used Crescent Colour's Fool's Gold (choose a heavily-variagated dye lot.)
Other colors used:
GAST Old Brick, GAST Ginger Snap (look for a reddish dye lot), GAST Toffee, GAST Old Hickory, WDW Teal Frost, WDW Gunmetal, WDW Kudzu, WDW Light Khaki, and Crescent Colours Old Money (lighter dye lot).
Katrina used 40 ct. Examplar for her sampler.
Thank you again, Katrina! We all appreciate it! :)
Now, I need to get busy getting the last few things organized before we hit the road in the morning. I'm so excited! It feels like Christmas!
And I'm sorry, Yorkie, not this time.
