I have stitched the bottom four rows of the blue dress on that angel three times. Three. Times. I have had to pick it all out and redo it over and over because the blue I had stitched on last December doesn't seem to match any of the blue I have left.
My blue was gone. Almost all of my colors are gone now.
I used the blue from the first kit I bought from Ebay and it was too dark.
I used the blue from the second kit I bought off Ebay and it was too light. I suppose the next step is to pick all the blue out, pick one blue and stick with it. I am really not happy about that but there's nothing else left to do. Grrrr......it's going into time out until I can deal.
I might as well confess that in a post about my disdain for stitching kits, I have bought yet another kit.
My reward for getting this one done by 2017 was to buy myself this awesome sampler all about needle crafts. I love it but all the same, I am looking very suspiciously at that floss.
