Mystery Solved

After a morning of playing "Sherlock Holmes," I figured out the mystery "brown."

It is DMC 420, yay!

I am back in stitches and rolling along once again.

Thanks for listening, and sorry for the interruption!


  1. Yay! is right. So glad you figured it out and the stitching can continue :)

  2. Thanks Babs, me too! :)

    That was one of those...doh! moments where I realized that I had blown it :) But thankfully it all worked out ok, and I now know every brown shade and it's number in the DMC color chart :)


  3. Can't wait to see a pic of your progress. I need to get my Lady finished.

  4. I will take a picture and post it tonight :)

  5. Glad you found the right color Karyn. Last month I lost my last length of particular dye lot in silk - ended up finding it in the vacuum cleaner bag! I accidentally vacuumed it up. But it was none the worse for the wear afer I wiped it off with a damp paper towel LOL. Only a stitcher would understand.....

  6. I don't feel so bad now! LOL I had part of a flower done from a couple of months ago. Last night I started back and used the color I *thought* was the one I was using. Turns out by looking at what I posted here that I was using is not the color I started using....go figure! But it looks the same to me lol
    I'll move on and see if I notice a difference later.
    Glad you figured out the color you were using.
