I bought two of these kits so I wouldn't run out of thread and I STILL ran out of red. Yessiree. Of course I did. AND I can't get a very good match using the DMC I picked up at Joanne's. I got every red there was but they are all wrong.
This wouldn't be a huge tragedy if I only had the bleeping flag left to do but I also have the whole bottom row of bleeping checked border. That's going to look just awful. If you remember I also ran out of gold for the border but I did find a decent, if not perfect match. Lesson learned: Don't buy kits. Buy patterns and then get plenty of floss from the currently available colors because this is NO fun.
