10 Magpies in a Pie....

Or... Birds of a Feather's "Counting Magpies".... Not sure how tasty magpies would be in a pie! If you ever try it (that is saying you can find a magpie), let me know how it goes! I've changed all the DMC conversions in this chart, except for the black #310. I feel one of my few "gifts" in life is being able to match up DMC colors to sampler threads. After collecting tons of sampler threads of various brands, I found I really don't care to stitch with them! But they still come in handy when I do my own versions of "converting". Sometimes I will like the conversions the designer has done - other times I find ones that I care for more. In this design (which I'm so happy to finally be stitching - I've had it forever) - I am using:

instead of DMC 3729 for Pecan - I'm using 434

instead of DMC 648 for Tin Roof - I'm using 3023

instead of DMC 3826 for Terra Cotta - I'm using 918

I love the way it is turning out!

I could never convert threads. I tend to stitch exactly as charted, lol. Glad you're enjoying it!!
