We Thank Thee Sampler

Hello blog friends.
The pictures you're about to see don't exactly match what it looks like in reality. Why do I say this? Because I know you'd be murmuring, What in the world was she thinking? Haha.
Last time I showed you this I was matching dyed floss vs. DMC to control my spending. This time around, I think you need to control me.
So here's the next color to finish off the border:
 It gets lost on the fabric, it's really lighter than the picture color. 
I replaced it with DMC 931, and here's how it looks: 
 It doesn't really look shockingly bright like the photo, I thought the medium antique blue evenly matched the dusky pink. Yeah, I really do need controlling. Maybe a nice frame mat will do justice to this piece, who am I kidding?

Thanks for visiting. Happy Stitching!


  1. Your stitching looks beautiful whatever shades you are substituting:) It is fine if you are spending for the right shade you are looking for but then if you collect too many brown/dusky shades then you will need some more projects around those shades in future.

  2. I think it looks great Gominam and I love the colors your using.


  3. I think the blue looks lovely, a nice splash of colour.

  4. I actually think that it looks really good:))) You've done well with your substitutions in my book! It'll be beautiful once finished:)

  5. Your project looks really good in the photo! But bad color rendering in my photos is a great disappointment to me as well!

  6. I love the border,lovely stitching.

  7. Oh I love the way it looks! Beautiful choices.
