Another Traditional Pattern

I am excited... Yesterday, my Kebyar Duduk Dancer kit arrived safely at my office.. This time I bought the kit directly from the designer, Mrs. Aryati & Mrs. Niniek D from Crossstitch Point, Jakarta.

I was disappointed the last time I bought the Pendet Dancer kit from H***y C***t-Bandung, because the designer's name didn't mentioned on the kit. And I think H***y C***t just re-print the pattern and sell it (I mean, no royalty for the designer). And besides, the price is more expensive there.. heheheheh

Anchor - DMC Conversion Chart?

I just received a September Stitch Along invitation from the Cross Stitch SAL group at my Facebook. So, I think I will continue to stitch my table-cloth at this event… (Well, I need to refresh my eyes and working on some colors instead of the monochrome).

Then I decide to do this in-between project.. The Margaret Sherry’s birthday hedgehog from October edition of Cross Stitcher #230. I think I will give it later to my daughter’s 5th grade classmate.

But then I hesitate when I convert the Anchor’s color number to DMC’s. It doesn’t fit the color on the sketch. You can see that MS always use Anchor instead of DMC. At the local stores here in Bandung, they only sell DMC and Blue Moon floss. I rarely find another brand, such as Anchor, Madeira, Coats, etc.

Here is what I have done so far. I wasn’t sure about the color of the background and the cheek… Maybe I should browse on another conversion chart. Any suggestions stitchers?
