Yes! I have completed another block! Are you happier, Cathey? Cathey (Pumpkin) has not let me forget that I am way behind on this project so this block is dedicated to her, lol! July was a breeze to stitch and was finished in no time. Once again, the conversion Bent Creek is using sucks and I used 434 instead of 3781 and 3854 instead of 422. I do understand this project was designed with overdyes in mind but it appears they didn't give any thought to the DMC alternates when writing the key. For example, in this design, the suggested DMC color for the birdies legs & beaks was 422, an olive/tan that looks nothing like the orange/yellow in the model picture. WTF?
I've kitted up August (and made 3 substitutions lol) and even put a few stitches in already. I imagine Cathey is squirming with guilt over her browbeating now. No, probably not. Surely, She is thinking, "You are still a month, behind, Sharon!" Ha! Well, I have it on good authority that Cathey now owns the charts for this project. You just wait...I'll be such a slave driver! *cue maniacal evil laughter*
