Here's an update on Crafty Cat after this weekend's stitching. I've stitched some of the light cream (the one that many consider too dark in the DMC version), and most of what they call "dark cream" - although to me it looks more golden than "dark cream"... which is actually all for the better, in my humble opinion!
So... what do you think of the colours? I don't have the corresponding DMC threads so I can't compare them in real life... (In case you have them and would like to compare, the "light cream" is Anchor #387 / DMC #3033, and the "dark cream" is Anchor #388 / DMC #842.) But from what I can see on the Internet from others' finishes using DMC threads, I do tend to think that the Anchor colours are more convincing in rendering the cat's face and the aida fabric on which he's sitting.
