Lesson Learned

The instructions for the punto antico biscornu we're doing in CyberStitchers as a project call for size 8 pearl cotton.  Silly me, I decided color was more important than size.  So I tried my Watercolours, which breaks down into size 5 pearl.  As you can see from looking at this, it looks all clunky and odd. 

So... I'll be starting over.  Luckily for me, I won a great big stash of Weeks Dye Works threads and they came in this week.  I'll be using those!  And yes, I'll have a picture and explanation of my win later this week.  Stay tuned!

Sorry you had trouble, I'd do the same thing. Live and learn. Your color scheme is nice though...looking forward to seeing your prize stash. YAY!

Thank you. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to change the colors, too, but I think it'll look better overall. This bit might end up in a crazy quilt at some point. Repurposing!
