Silkweaver 28 ct. Opalescent Lugana, color Chashmere Glitz
Stitched 1 X 1 DMC
Other stitchy news: I am experiencening the Frog Plague with QS Arthur. First I didn't like the fabric, so I re-started it on different fabric. Now I'm having an issue with one of the colors in the background. It doesn't look like the picture and I'm not exactly sure what's wrong with it. The color is DMC #3856 (see the bright orange color below). I checked with Michele at HAED and my chart is correct, but she agrees that is doesn't look right. Could be a dye lot issue, it's just too dark. However, all the 3856 I have looks the same. What to do???? My only option now is to frog it all, and re-restart (yes, re-restart) in the middle of the chart, then maybe not stitch the background at all. I should have done that in the first place. I've been drooling over everyone's wips of their moggies on the HAED BB for weeks, and complaining that I wouldn't get to see any detail on mine for a while since I had started in the upper left corner. Can you imagine frogging 900 stitches, 1 X 1, from my gorgeous Passione Ricamo 30 ct. evenweave linen? It's a nightmare. I started last night and frogged for about 3 hours, and it's not all out yet, of course I am trying be be so very careful, so as to not damage the fabric.
