Choosing a colorstory for a project is a wonderful challenge. This is one I’m particularly excited about. To me it speaks of Indian summers and autumn. (A little odd to think about when spring has just begun, but you know how it is - designers must always work two seasons ahead.)
Things I really wish I could find official verification on
Apparently DMC are putting out 35 new colours? I’ve only been able to find two stores, both based in the UK, with pre-orders available. But nothing from DMC themselves stating that they’re coming out with new colours?
Does anybody know anything else about this? I need to know!
I crocheted the mask with a size 11 hook and two strands of dmc floss, the cuff is felt, cut to size and quilted over with a Zelda fabric. I cut out just the link panels and lined them up side by side. I tacked it down throughout all of the black lines. The clasp was also crocheted and I used beads I was lucky enough to have in the perfect color combo to keep it closed.
Hi April! I've once seen your cross stitch on my dash (it's absolutely GORGEOUS), and I've been meaning to ask for ages, did you get the pattern with a special site or something? And also, what thread do you use?
I used pic2pat.com to make the pattern. You can upload any photo and then choose your stitches per inch, size, and floss (thread) to use. I always use DMC floss, because that seems to be the most widely available. Here’s the current state of it (and thank you for your kind words!):
(It’s going to need washed and ironed when I’m done. It especially needs a lint roller to get the cat hair off, lol.)
