* Corrections/Cross References

Corrections and Informational Updates

In come cases, I've included links to documents with cross references from various silks and cottons, one brand to another, specific to certain of my designs issued in the last few years.  These links will take you to Google Docs, a safe environment where you can see and  download the file.

Please understand that any cross references I provide are not exact between floss companies. I have rarely seen a floss color created by one company that is exact with another company's palette.  Also remember that a solid color like DMC cannot possibly be a perfect xref to a hand-dyed variegated floss. With that in mind, I've considered each design as a whole, choosing those colors which work nicely together

Notice:  For any of our  charts that list the brand Crescent Colours silks or cottons, the company has changed owners as of November 2013.  The names of the colors are to remain the same, but the company is now called 

Classic Colorworks, owned by Ronny Williams.

Queen For Today- has two symbols in the key that are so similar that some folks were confused. The gold color on the crown is an asterisk symbol  and the words (green) are a solid black dot. Any future charts we print will have different symbols.  Just as a double-check, be aware that only the crown is stitched in gold.

Needleworker's Abecedarius - on very early charts, there is a notation that this design can be worked over 1 thread.   This is in error - this design contains Queen Stitch, which must be worked over 2 threads

Patient Stitchersuggested fabric is Rue green by Zweigart. This color has been discontinued but a satisfactory xref is either Weeks Dye Works Morris Blue or Seafoam

................................................................................................................................................Giovanni's Alphabet  supplies/floss xref

Some early charts show the leafy border below that second alphabet charted in the same dark green used in the top alphabet with the flowers alternating in pink and lavender.  See the little arrow pointing to the affected border.  The model was stitched with the lighter green with all pink flowers.  Newer charts issued later in 2012 have been corrected.  Either way is pretty;  floss needs are the same.

In addition, I have had a few questions about the spacing of the borders between the top large alphabet and the straight stitch diamond and star borders. Also others have mentioned that the Q is higher than the O in that same alphabet.  The Q was taller in the original antique alphabet designed by Giovanni Ostaus in his 1561 book as I mention in the chart. As for the diamond and star borders under the top large alphabets, please stitch the spacing however pleases you. The spacing of 2 rows vs 3 rows was an oversight in charting as opposed to my stitching it, but I don't consider it an error in any strict sense. Many charts that are reproductions or ones that are intended to look old have many little irregularities. I believe those irregularities add to the character of the piece.  

Please stitch and enjoy - and feel free to  make changes that please you. :-)

The first charts issued suggest "1000d" Perle, but also states size 12.  
The key should say "600d" Perle, which is equivalent to size 12

  Panoply of Peacocks

Back and straight stitches:  There are two letter “P”s which have no indication as to color to be used.  These two which appear in Section 3 are to be done in 3765 DMC on the the large P; 924 for the small one. 
 If you are using Crescent floss, the translation is in the key on the chart.

All other back stitching  is done in the same floss color as the stitches for the motif itself.  For example, this motif in violet is all the same color, whether cross stitches and back stitch.  If you want to use a contrasting that's your choice. The finished work is yours to personalize as you wish.  
 In certain areas, the symbol that appears as an inverted Trident - should be used for Crescent Cotton either Amber Waves or Creeping Jenny - depending on which shows better on the fabric you have chosen; for CC silks, Lily Pad is another suggestion.  If using DMC, suggested is 833 Golden Olive
