....and looking good! (Even if I say so myself!!!)
The next block has been started....but.... a couple of problems already...
Problem number one.....I have run out of the dark brown colour of the tea :( Don't you just hate when that happens? So, the kit gives you DMC equivalents of the threads.....but.....the colour isn't the same as the thread in the kit....so, do I email the company and wait for some replacement threads or do I unpick the dark brown and re-stitch it with the thread in my stash....mmmm, can't decide what to do.
Problem number two.....the dark purple seems to be just a bit too dark for my liking. So, do I do some more unpicking and swap a lighter shade in or do I just trust that it will look ok once the back stitching is completed? Mmmmm, what to do?
On to some good news....I finally got round to making a card with the little birdie stitching.......remember the aperture had been cut upside down......
This little cutie will be winging it's way over to my son in California! Don't think this little fella will be needing his scarf over there :) Wish I could hand deliver it.
So, I have some decisions to make with the tea sampler....lets hope I decide wisely, and don't regret my decisions! If you hear any muttering and moaning, it's likely to be me complaining about all the unpicking!
Until next time....happy stitching!
