Thimble Thursday - Golden Dreams

My current x-stitch project!

Golden Dreams
counted x-stitch kit by Bucilla
I've linked the photo to a website where the kit can be purchased if you are interested in making it yourself.

My progress so far - after a little under two weeks. Hoping to have this done by 9/7/2010.
It's for my mother-in-law's birthday!

I work on this in the evenings while watching Smallville with the hubby. He just started season 1.
Since I've already watched the series up to the current season, I don't really watch what's on the screen, and make good progress on the x-stitch, but it's always enjoyable to look up every now and then and see Tom Welling on the TV! ;-)

Happy Creating!



  1. Hi!

    My friend has also bought this "Golden Dreams" kit but she's in a kind of trouble. She's not able to sort the threads out. So I was thinking, if you can help her somehow. Have you any idea how the threads would convert to DMC's?

    And sorry for my errors, I'm from Finland :)


  2. Hi Nina! And hello to your friend as well. :)

    I had a lot of trouble sorting the threads for this kit as took 3 days to separate them and now I have each color in an individual baggie with a label.

    I have a conversion chart for DMC thread but it does not include conversion not for Plaid/Bucilla kits. Maybe she can call Plaid 800-842-4197 and ask if they can send her a "true color" chart. I've called on a different kit before to get replacement thread, so maybe they can help her with the Golden Dreams kit.

    Cheers and best of luck!
