Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow

I have decided to stitch Autumn at Hawk Run Hollow by Carriage House Samplings. I am, however, going to leave the two Halloween blocks out, thereby making it somewhat shorter. I am not fond of the witch nor the other Halloween block. I have decided to stitch my project on 36 ct. Sand Dune. I am now trying to decide whether to use Needlepoint Silks or DMC. The cost of Needlepoint Silks for this project is somewhat prohibitive, even though I think the final look of the silks is always beautiful and subtle. DMC colors are beautiful as well. What are some of you using if you are stitching this project?
