I finally got to the motif part of Janet Carsels. I had to make a couple of color adjustments because the chosen colors just didn't look right. It could be that the DMC to AVS conversion wasn't accurate or more likely, the colors/dye lots themselves have changed. That seems to happen a lot. I had three different dye lots for one of the colors I switched to and the best match was the oldest one. So even when there's a printed conversion, it's probably best to confirm it whenever possible. Fortunately, I have a fairly large stash of AVS that makes that possible. One of the perks of having owned a couple of needlework shops in the past. :)
This is probably a good point at which to switch back to Le Jardin de Plaisir, but who knows? Stay tuned.
