If it had started out as a fetus, it would now have teeth and can walk.
I began my Baldemor project in April 2012. It’s now one year and two months since but I’m not done yet. The 5th of six panels is maybe 1/2 done, the sixth hasn’t yet been started.
So many distractions: telenovelas, telenovelas, and telenovelas. Okay, there’s work too. And then some.
This morning I decided to sew even just a little on it. Note that I use a black and white pattern which has symbols indicating what thread to use. I thought the thread I needed was 3031 because the symbol in the pattern where I had stopped a few days ago looked like a circle that was half black. I checked my threads for a green 3031 after checking out the chart that showed the corresponding thread for the symbol was 3031. Couldn’t find any but was sure I still had the green floss I had used.
Flummoxed, I checked the symbols list and realized that there also was a symbol that was a half circle shaded black, not a whole circle half of which was shaded black. I saw the color I needed was 911, not 3031. Found 911.
So did I not have 3031? Googled for the color chart of DMC and found several sites. But this one is the best: http://www.stitchstitch.info/english/menupages/DMC%20colors.html. And I realized I also had 3031 after all and it’s brown. Wrong color, right number.
The chart in the said site looks something like this:
Might take so many more months to finish but I’m already thinking of getting the pattern for Good Harvest because I like the colors. Found a photo of it in DMC’s Facebook page and googled for it as I wasn’t sure the one who posted it in FB would not mind my filching. Found this on this site:
