I also finally finished the chestnut brown background on Kindness!!! Only to discover that I now get to stitch all the leaves in a different shade of brown...cocoa. I have nothing against brown. I rather like it. My son's eyes are brown. I am just tired of stitching in brown. On the cover, the model's leaves have more of a greenish look to them, or so I thought. But the design calls for Weeks Cocoa. The Cocoa almost blends in with the Chestnut, I think. I stitched one tiny section in Cocoa in the top left corner last night. I guess I can decide by next Monday what to do...stitch with the recommended cocoa or switch it out for something a little more greenish.
Tonight I work on Simple Gifts-Love. Considering that for the last two Wednesdays, this project has given me absolute fits, I have frogged more than I have stitched, and I have zero progress to show, I am almost afraid to even take it out of the bag. I have decided that if I have the same problems tonight, then it is a sign of some sort and this project is getting booted out of the rotation for awhile.
Other than that, I am looking forward to quite a relaxing evening. My house is clean, supper has been cooked, dishes washed, son is done with homework., and it is only 6:30 p.m. I love nights like this. :) Hope you are enjoying your evening wherever you are as well.
Until next time...
