Slow Progress?

Remember that needlepoint kit I found a while back?  Well, I've been working on it...slow and steady.
 I tried some purple, some pink, and some orange.  I also dabbled in some white on the flowers:
But, as per usual, I did not read the directions very thoroughly.  For the purple and most of the pink, I separated the provided thread into three separate strands and I stitched with one of them at a time.  Had I read the directions, I would have seen that I was to separate them into two threads and one thread and then I would have stitched with the two thread grouping.  
 Maybe with this angle, you can see that the orange and some of the pink is thicker:
 Also, I don't like those splotches of blue on the rainbow.  They are supposed to be birds.  I think they suck, so I am stitching over them.  With two stitches you can't see their outlines, so that's good.  I should really learn to read the directions all the way through.


  1. It cost 25 will be fine. They always allow for extra yarn materials in these kits as people screw up. Rachel still rocks.

  2. I couldn't agree with your Mom more:)
