Herbularius conversion

Hi!  My name is Sarah and I'm a Chatelaine addict!

Not gonna change it either...just don't tell Ed!  I don't think he'll understand.

I've been asked to share my conversion for a new Chatelaine...The Medieval Cloister Herbularius.  So, here it is!

I left the DMC.  It keeps the price down.

Eterna Silks Mini Twist
ET 4220 - DMC 700 - HDF Popinjay 3309

Needlepoint Inc. Silk.  I debated about this one.  I did the conversion from the DMC conversion that Martina provided and just don't like how the colors work together.  So, I'm going to bite the bullet and order the NPI.  I'll probably get them from the Michigan Doctor and the Lil Thread Shop on e-bay.  Just contact the seller (sorry, I can't remember her name off hand) and she's great to work with.  She'll work with you independently of e-bay too.

Just so you know, I have no affiliation, just a very happy HDF customer.

Thanks for sharing your conversions with us. How do you decide what to convert too? Do you just look over what's available till you find one that looks right?

Andrea said...

Awesome! Thanks so much for sharing! Go ahead and share your other conversions if you want ;) So glad I can comment on your bog now :D

Congrats on your conversion, I don't even have the courage to change a color when I need to, lol!! I love having the option of conversions, so thank you for doing this. I can't wait to see pictures when you start stitching!!

Hi Sarah :D Just a couple of questions, hope you don't mind :D I'm thinking Jewelweek should be Jewel Weed? Also would you mind checking the number for Gandy Dancer? I can't find one with that number. Also I can't find HDV Wattle and Daub Premium or the custom HDF for Jade WL 066, do I need to ask for those two, too? Thanks heaps!!! *hugs*
