I received my cadeaux from Ana for the Autumn Exchange hosted by the SBEBB. And so:
Beautifully wrapped in gold paper, I received a lovely pillow, with the words “C’est l’automne”; a beautiful needlebook with far too many to count lazy daisy’s (I really dislike these – Ana does such a nicer job than i!), some overdyed floss and some beautiful lace.
If you have stitched for a while, can you usually pick out the DMC colors you need from memory when you go to your LNS? (For example, you know that 610 is a brown.)
For some colours, yes. I know 310 is black and 500-504 are greens (thanks, TW!). As for the rest… I can guess but I probably would be wrong!
