    Is the Serenity Prayer going to be available in the UK? When I click on the stitchery link it says the site is not available in the UK. Alternatively I would love to purchase the chart if it is available.

    Joan, Is there a misprint on your Graceful Geishas in Cross Stitch Collection? I bought the floss and then realized it calls for both DMC 3779 (Anchor 236) and 3799 (Anchor 236). It says both are gray. One is for the cross stitch and one is for the back stitch. It’s confusing. Thank you.

      It is the same color and there are no errors. They always list colors for both the cross stitch and the backstitch. That is why you see it listed twice. You will see a red * next to the colors that are listed twice in the key. Hope that helps!

        OK. When I saw 3779 and 3799 I assumed they would NOT be the same color because the DMC numbers were different
        . Hence the confusion. Thank you.

        Forgive me. I was looking at my chart file which did not have the error and did finally find the magazine issue. You are right! I am sorry that the magazine made this error. Both should be 3799

    I like the Irish welcoming, this is just the thing that I needed. Thank you very much!

    Joan, the background of your stitched piece draws you in to read, and especially stitch! I want THIS example of this prayer to hang in my home! A daily reminder on my walls certainly can help me! Beautiful!

    I went to the stitchery site. The Serenity prayer by Joan Elliott is not listed. Where can I find the pattern/kit?
