Shenandoah Spring  View PDF (1.5mb)
I made a big mistake in the Jessica diagram, starting on page 7 of the instructions. The graph on page 13 is correct, but if you would like to have the correct stitch diagram, please download! If your chart has Version 1.1 on the back page right under the title, you don’t need the correction.

Good grief! I left the “G” out of the alphabet! Download the corrected alphabet page here. If your chart has Version 1.1 on the back page right under the title, you don’t need the correction.

Winter Fantasy – large Jessica correctionView Pdf (7mb)
The main graphs are correct, but the stitch diagram is off by one thread at the top. The corrected diagram pages are in the “WinterFantacyLargeJessicaCorrection” pdf file which can be downloaded and printed. If you purchased your chart after January 2009, the chart should be correct, but if you have a question about it check here.

Happy Hour

This is a big one! Thanks to Dorothy for pointing it out! On page 11, this is what it should say:

“While you’re in the mood to stitch pavilion diamonds with the silk floss, go ahead and stitch the pavilion diamonds that form the interior border of the double diamonds. There are 15 canvas threads between the bottom of the pavilion diamonds in the upper band and the top of the pavilion diamonds in the interior border. You may begin stitching the interior pavilion diamonds at any point, by counting 15 canvas down and beginning a pavilion diamond. It may make more sense, however, to start at the top point of the diamond shape, or at one of the outside edges. The outside edge is one canvas thread in from the outer edge of the previous stitches, on both the right and the left sides.

After the interior pavilion diamonds borders are stitched, stitch pavilion diamonds band for the bottom edge. It mirrors the top band. The bottom of the pavilion diamonds interior border is 15 canvas threads from the top of these pavilion diamonds, the same distance that the top band is from the interior pavilion diamonds border.

The open canvas between the all these pavilion diamonds is filled with overlapping crescents. The crescents will share holes with the pavilion diamonds. The pavilion diamonds would have been more difficult to stitch with the crescents already in place, so even though there was some difficult counting, it’s easier in the long run.”

In the first printings of Happy Hour, I was a complete doofus, forgot how to count and said it was 14 canvas threads. That is absolutely wrong, since the crescents cover 15 canvas threads! Dorothy caught it, emailed me, and the book is now corrected. But if you got one of the first printings, yours may say 14 canvas threads. I am so sorry, and apologize in advance for the frogging!

A BUMP IN THE RHODES

A color correction for the back page (the color is listed correctly inside) -

The floss color is shown as “45050 Very Dark Lavender” on some charts, and should be “45040 Very Dark Lavender”. It has been corrected on subsequent printings of the chart, and is correctly listed on the thread table inside the chart.

GARDEN OF SILKEN DELIGHTS

On the back cover, Tranquility 217 is listed as one of the required threads, but I didn’t use it in the design. This is only on the first printings of the chart; we got it fixed for later printings. Tranquility 217 is not needed for the design.

TRICKY TREATS

Pages 9 and 10 are printed in color after 10-18-13, but if you got an earlier printing of the book, here are the color pages:

Page 10

AUTUMN LEAVES

I don’t know how I managed this one, but I forgot to list one of the threads needed for the design, on the back page AND on the first inside page. You will need 1 skein of DMC Satin Floss S741 Medium Tangerine. I have managed to get it corrected for later printings, but if you got one of the first printings you won’t know about this thread until you get to page 27.

    Trying to stitch “THE BIBLE”.

      Hi Deborah, If you’ll email me I’ll send you a color key. I chose not to include one so I could make the chart as large as possible. Adding a color key to the page would have reduced the overall size of the chart. But I’ll be happy to send you a color key if you’ll email me.

    I am stitching “Wave the Flag”. On page 5 the placement of the ray stitch doesn’t match up on the left and the right. The right side has a canvas thread between the ray stitch and the brick stitches. On the left, the ray stitch and the brick stitches share the same holes until you get mid way then the brick stitch disappears. bj finch
