Donna L. of Reston VA sent me this photo of her almost-finished 'Neptune/Poseidon' and has allowed me to show it to you. He's a little under-dressed right now since she took this picture before attaching his fish and sand dollar ear-rings!
She stitched him on 28-ct. Twilight Blue Linen... great job, Donna.
It seems that stitchers are, by nature, a very curious bunch... on a permanent quest to increase their knowledge of all things 'stitchy'. Chances are that you already know where to locate the list of colour names that I use when attaching this information to my site and charts. If not, then you might enjoy visiting these pages... "DMC Embroidery Floss Colours". ... CLICK ON 'LISTS & CONVERSIONS'; then 'Embroidery Floss Colours' for a complete, printable list of DMC flosses and colour names.
