Hello wonderful happy friends... Wow!! I cannot actually believe it, it's AUGUST!! Here is my Joyful Journal Heart in Hand month :) they are all just so darn cute!! Loved stitching this one :)
Ok so I bet your all wondering why I put "Go me" ?? I will explain.....
Last time I posted I showed you all where I was up to with The Scarlet Letter Mary Gail design. Oh my!! Well I looked at it and looked at it, the men's jacket that is. And the more I looked the more I thought the colour was wrong. Jon the sweetie checked the conversion to DMC threads and NO!! The number was wrong! So basically what I had stitched had to come out!! Eeeeeek!!
Around this point I was thinking just as well I stopped when I did!!
Remember this is what it looked like.... Ha ah the wrong outer colour on the jacket.
See it's awfully light, got me doubting everything.
I stitched a little of the inner colour just to make sure! The thread bobbins here are what is listed... And 646 is not dark enough.
Here you can see the 646 I used and the darker colour I should of stitched it in!
It took ages and ages!! Those tiny stitches on 45 count are really hard to get out!! I don't recommend it!!
So then I stitched from the inner bit I tested... Rather odd but it was a starting point I had when I had pulled all the other stitches out.
Then I went on.... Stitched more!! I also stitched the outer darker colour... I like it better!! I still have the Middle bit and filler of the jacket to do.
So the "go me" is basically because after sitting 2 days sulking about what I had done and what I now he to do to correct it.... I DID IT!! Lol go me!! Ha ha a
I feel a lot happier about the colours now... On with the stitching!
Today is Sunday and tomorrow here in England apparently is a bank holiday ?? News to me! Ha ha I am so out of the loop. Well a nice long weekend for some! Enjoy :)
Hope your all well and merrily stitching or creating?
I will pop back soon!
Smiles to you all :)
