Corrections

Eliza Strawbridge – I just want to mention that I used the Gentle Arts/Weeks/DMC listed in the middle column for the cover model. I do list a straight DMC conversion if stitchers would like to use it instead. The DMC colors are as I drew it originally – I do change things around a bit as I go, so the DMC colors do not strictly match up to the Gentle Arts and Weeks colors.  It will turn out lovely either way.  I just couldn’t find exact matches for the colors of the sampler, so substituted what I could find in the overdyeds.

Christina Junor – Please note that you will need at least three skeins of Gentle Arts Country Redwood and Forest Glade, two skeins of Old Blue Paint if stitching over two on 32ct fabric.  Cidermill Brown was not used in the piece.  Marilyn from Picture This Plus confirmed that Oaken is the fabric used for this piece, although their Heritage looks equally good with the threads used.  Other possible substitutes would be Lakeside Vintage Pear or Silkweaver Purely Primitive.

Alice Smith – man’s face is all 738 over one.

Jane Baxter – You will need two skeins of Chinese Red 502.  Just one of the other colors is plenty.

Frances Eliza Kimber –  Frances Eliza Kimber was charted using DMC.  The DMC numbers were inadvertently left off.  (I didn’t know that my software offered this option – why it does is a mystery.)  The problem has been corrected on subsequent charts, but if you received one of the first ones, here is the list of DMC that you will need.  In addition, I’ve worked on a Belle Soie alternative to the DMC threads suggested.  Colors are listed after the DMC colors.  The Belle Soie looks especially nice with a neutral such as Lakeside Vintage Pearled Barley.

Beige Gray LT 822 – Oatmeal Scone

Old Gold Medium 729 – Her Crown

Garnet 816 – Sister Scarlet

Coral LT 352 – Strawberry Shortcake

Pearl Gray V LT 762 – Love Dove

Yellow Green V LT 772 – Kiwi or Fern Frond

Green Fern V LT 524 – Beanstalk or Ivy League

Beige DK Yellow 3045 – Pecan Pie

Gray Beaver Ultra DK 844 – Slate

Emma Chester – Emma was charted and stitched using Needlepoint Inc silks.  The Needlepoint Inc silk numbers were left off of the first printing of the chart.  The problem was corrected on subsequent charts, but please use the following list if you have a chart that doesn’t have the NPI numbers.

I’m very sorry for any confusion this may have caused.

Leontine de Hert – The last line was inadvertently deleted from the chart.  When I charted it, it was there, but along the lines it was deleted.  Please stitch the bottom line as the stitched model shows.  Arrows on the right hand side of the chart should be pointing to the left as shown in the model. Also, the dimensions on the back page are more accurate than those on the inside page, although I did do an actual measurement to achieve those listed inside.  Since hand-dyed fabric is known to shrink, this accounts for the discrepancy between calculated and actual measurement.

Elizeabeth Bordman – Aphrodite’s love is Adonis.  This will make more sense when you read the inside description of the piece.  Otherwise, no errors have been reported that pertain to the actual chart.
