Hi, I've been lurking for a while picking up all sorts of helpful tips since I started cross stitching again after a rather long break. I've come across a problem that I can't find the solution to by searching myself, so I'm hoping someone here can help.

I've just bought two charts by Little House Needleworks - The Library and Coffee Menu. They mix DMC and Crescent colours but I'd much rather use all DMC and I can't find a colour conversion anywhere. Well, I can, several in fact, but not for the colours in the charts. I think they must be out of date now.

Does anyone know of an up to date converter?

Thanks for any help :)

I found this one online, but it doesn't look like it has all the Crescent Colours shades.

There's also this one, but it also looks incomplete.....

Thanks for that Kim :)

That's given me another one on my list but I'm still missing 7 of the colours to convert. Getting there slowly though.
