I changed my mind

Yes, I changed my mind. If you read my blog you know that I occasionally do this. LOL.
I did not like the medium value I had originally chosen for the leaves in the Kreinik # 12's.
So I spent some time this afternoon and took out all of the Kreinik. I then pulled out some Rainbow Gallery. A single strand of Gold Rush 18 in 144C is now the darkest value. Two strands of Nordic Gold in 5 are the medium value. A single strand of Gold Rush 18 in 33C is the lightest value. I also added Red 003 Kreinik 12 to the lightest red value in the berries.
Much better, now I can sleep. LOL

Well, if something bugs you about a piece, it will always bug you, so you did the right thing to rip it out now before you got too far along.

I agree with Jane, get rid of it now. I like the new look, a very pretty design.

Hi Pat,

Isn't it funny that when our stitching doesn't work it bothers us and we find ourselves thinking about it at the oddest moments? At least that's what happens with me! LOL!

This is looking beautiful and now that you are happier with your thread choices, you'll finish it in no time. :-)
