Silks conversion for Mystery Sampler by With Thy Needle & Thread

A customer of mine asked me to do an over-dyed silks conversion for her for With Thy Needle & Thread's Mystery Sampler (available as a three-part chart series.) As long as I went to the trouble, I thought I'd share with you the conversion, in case you're interested in stepping it up a notch. Weeks Dye Works colors are on the left -- silk conversion is on the right.

Thanks Theresa! I haven't started stitching this one yet but have all 3 charts. Now I can start saving for all the necessary silks.

I am doing this one in silks...some of the colors I have are different. I will take a look at these and perhaps change mine up a bit. I am doing cardnals versus the blue birds in the tree for sure...doing this on a FOM from you - I LL Lentil. Absolutely a wonderful stitch thus far!! Thanks for doing the conversion :0)

Thanks for doing this and for sharing with everyone. I love the look and working with the silks, however the budge does not always allow. It's great to have the option.
