Info on My 'Tis The Season Finish

Thanks for the compliments! The thread for the scarf is Bethlehem by WDW. The fabric is Silkweavers 28 ct Brandywine lugana. If you want to see what it is supposed to look like: 'Tis The Season. As you can see from the description, it was supposed to be stitched in Belle Soie, but I couldn't afford to get those, and I really like the way it turned out.

Not that anyone asked, but I am pretty impressed with myself with the colors I picked, so I'm listing my color conversions. I did not try to pick things that exactly matched the Belle Soie although I did try that at first. I found colors I liked that worked together, and used those.

Belle Soie to Crescent Colors:
icing = khaki mocha
fresh raspberry = razzleberry
collard greens = English ivy
noir = Zach black
Chester's blue = deep sea blue
blue lagoon = blacksmith blue
carrot cake = fallen leaves
love dove = lunar eclipse

DMC:
318 = 646

The scarf on the snowman was supposed to be red and green, and the one on the cat was green (I think). Anyway, I had the WDW Bethlehem that I had used in one of my Christmas ornaments and I really liked the color, so I just used it instead. If I stitched it again, I would used a deeper grey or black for the mouse though. I wish he stood out a little darker so he was more noticeable.

They came out great! I saw your post on my blog about the books. I like to read the books, but I enjoy watching things, too. I don't have Showtime, so I haven't seen "The Tudors", but I heard it was really good.
