.....and to make matter worse I really only need a few inches of thread! As you can see in the picture below I am using every last bit of thread to get this done but, alas, I have to admit defeat, I need more thread....
....see that little bit between the two arrows....that's all I need to finish off the border plus a little more to complete the single strand stitched swirls at the 'E'.
Since I do have
....and none of them matched.....and then my collection of DMC threads....
I think I'm going to have to get creative and unpick some of the border and put in another swirl that will be stitched in a darker shade, hopefully leaving me enough of the lighter pink thread to finish off the border and the last of the swirls. And as you can see, I decided to unpick the darker pink as I didn't think It was showing up very well.
So much for this being a quick stitch! Wish me luck for getting it finished on time.
Until next time...happy stitching!
