Be Ever Thankful, Revisited

My friend Sandy finished Sue's project Be Ever Thankful this week. Instead of springing for the expensive silks, Sandy converted to fibers that were in her stash. I absolutely love the way her version turned out, and I know Sue would have loved it too. Take a look -




















Sandy gave me this list of Sue's original colors and her conversion:
NPI 605 Soft Mauve - DMC 3740
NPI 724 Cinnamon, Med. - WDW Cognac
NPI 756 Crimson Tide - WDW Brick
NPI 903 Raw Sienna - WDW Havana
Gloriana Autumn Arbor - Needle Neccessities 130
Gloriana Olive Grove - WDW Moss

If the cost of the silks has kept you from considering this project, try Sandy's version. I think it rocks! A big thank-you to Sandy for letting me include the photo of your project and your conversion here on my blog. I appreciate it!

Yesterday I mentioned that the final part of Terre de France had been released so I was going to get started on it. Apparently I had turbo needles last night, because this is what I accomplished:














That's pretty close to half done at one sitting. At this rate it will either be finished tonight or tomorrow at the latest. I think I'm just a wee bit excited. I was reading Annick's forum this morning and it sounds like she has another project in the works for us. I can't wait to see what it is!

Yesterday while catching up on my blog reading I browsed through Michelle's August goals and accomplishments. I was amazed to see Homespun Elegance's Woolly Tyme Club on her list. I haven't seen anyone else discussing this neat project. Drema has great pictures here. I need to stuff my sheep and get started. I've been mulling over the rebirth of Move It Out Monday, and I think the July Woolly Tyme Club design would be a perfect piece to start with. Come on Monday!

I'd like to thank everyone for your nice comments. I appreciate hearing from you!

I do love Sandy's BET - those colors are so rich and inviting! Thanks for providing the conversion, too.

The final Terre de France is out? Good grief. I wish I could borrow your turbo needles!
