Gentle Readers and Dear Friends another week rolls by and it's almost Friday - can I get a Whoop-Whoop!!!! Although the temps here is the City are hovering in the high 50's low 60's (depending on where in the City you are) we are going to get a bit cooler over the weekend... low 50's, lots of fog.... and unless I can find some great Estate Sales I gonna just stay in and stitch and watch movies!!! After two weeks of nothing, zilch, Nada - I am not feeling it a the moment to hassle with the traffic and parking issues to go shopping.... but who knows, come Saturday morning I might just feel it and go anyway!!
Anywho - the mail has brought me a little tasty treat - CCN September Cottage - and I pulled the recommended floss and then hauled out my over dyed stash floss and here is my conversion.........
On the right are the called for DMC choices (a bit on the orange side for me) I converted them to the following:
DMC 349 to GAST Geranium
DMC 351 to GAST Rhubarb
DMC 729 to WDW Marigold
DMC 3031 to CC Caterpillar
DMC B5200 for the White
WDW Pecan and WDW Grasshopper
I found I have 3 skeins of Rhubarb and each skein is very different - I chose the lightest of the three. I like the idea of using a redder red - and Geranium will work nicely - since I presume that the "fruit" on "September" are apples, I think it will be nicer than the coral called for.
Last night I stitched a bit on an Exchange piece, but also stitched some on ATS... no snap of either.
Just a quick mention, TCM started of "The Summer Under the Stars" month long star a day festival yesterday with a day long tribute to John Wayne. Today it is a day long tribute to that wonderful actress, Myrna Loy!!
This weekend the focus is on Marilyn Monroe, Saturday and Claude Rains on Sunday. You can click on over to the TCM site for the complete schedule. One of the Super Months at TCM!!!!
That's about it for today sports fans!! Thanks for stopping by, and for you great comments and emails!! Do stop again.
