Rainbow Mermaid Update

Tuesday, October 14, 2008

I have now finished the first row (3 pages) of Rainbow Mermaid. She is stitched on 28ct evenweave 1 over 1, full crosses.

There's only one problem, a while back I noticed that my 613 was really 612. Don't know how it happened, probably mislabled the bobbin when I wound it. Anyways, there's a section of background that was stitched in the wrong color. I was scared to frog on such a small count over one, but it came out ok. I spent about 2 hours last night painstakingly removing the "wrong" 613. I will stitch the correct color tonight. Here's a pic to explain the problem: PIC NOT AVAILABLE
I have two more projects that were affected by the incorrect color that I will eventually correct. I was just so mad when I found out that I had to put them aside to cool off for a while. I also went through my entire DMC collection on bobbins and compared to both the color chart and unwound skiens to make sure there weren't any more mistakes in my jammer box. Luckily, none were found!
