I am impressed with my stash! First of all, I saw on Facebook that Giulia (of GPA Designs) gave some DMC conversions for the half doll pattern, Maria Teresa. Yeah! I couldn't find the Valdani threads it calls for even at Stitchville. So I wrote down the conversion to DMC. But I was confused as one of the conversions was for DMC 4015. There is no 4015 on my DMC chart, granted my chart is old. So I checked on Stitching Bits and Bobs and didn't see any 4015. So I commented on Giulia's post that there isn't a DMC 4015. Guess what, there is. Giulia got back to me with a source even. It is an overdyed color. I was wondering if I would have to order it. I decided to check some of the overdyed DMC that I have. I bought some in a box but had no idea what the numbers were. First box, the numbers were all under 100. Second box, bingo, the numbers were in the 4000 range. I had to dig but I found that I actually have it. How's that for stash?
Then here is how far I got on Buzz. I'm on the last hive.
I ran out of Week's Bright Leaf floss. I thought I would have to go to my LNS and see if they had it. It is mostly a yarn store but they have a big ring of Weeks. Before I go, I better check my stash to see if I already have another skein. Guess what? I do! Cool.
I can hardly believe it is Friday and I am leaving on Wednesday. I better start thinking about packing. My dilemma is I don't know if it is going to be cool or warm. Maybe I'll have to take some cool and some warm clothes.
I got Lesson 3 for Jackie's Berries Sew Sweet. Now I am three lessons behind! ARGH.
