Footprints in the Sand - KUCK
I started this piece on April 1, participating in an April 1st stitchalong.  I haven't had as much time to stitch as I would like, but I have almost finished page one. Good think I like the color blue!  The unstitched areas call for a metallic thread and I am waiting on a response back from Michele before doing those areas.  Not sure what to blend the Krenick with...
I am stitching on 18 ct. white aida using two strands of DMC floss.

Cathy, beautiful start!
Kreinik 032 is not a blending type. You use it alone. There's lots of discussion on the topic on the BB. Check here http://heavenandearthdesigns.yuku.com/topic/10042/Floss-to-replace-032
and here http://heavenandearthdesigns.yuku.com/topic/13414/Question-regarding-kreinik-and-rainbow-gallery. You can type kreinik into the search box on the BB and find lots of info.

Louanne, Thank you so much for that information. I had written to Michele and not gotten an answer back but I have been in and out of the hospital for a month and could have missed an email from her. Your timing is perfect, as I am going to buy floss tomorrow. Thank you for your help. Cathy
