totally shopped my stash! The overdyed is a Weeks Dye Works "special" called"Old Glory" (#4133)and it caused the biggest headaches because there wasn't enough of it to "double" so after ripping it all out once, I had to go with six strands instead of twelve and coverage isn't so hot. The blues are an unknown three-strand tapestry wool (left overs from a kit I had done YEARS ago) separated into single strands and then doubled, Anchor floss # 1034 (doubled into 12 strands), and Caron Watercolors #44 "Ice". The "pink" cuff is another tapestry wool, DMC 7207, four stranded separated into two strands (and that wasn't easy! LOL).

Not really my color pallette but I needed an overdyed (so Janet Perry said in the instructions) that had at least two colors in it, and if I didn't want to go all Christmas, Halloween or July 4, this was what I had!
