Christmas Sampler 1999 - finished
Christmas Sampler 1999 from Barrick Samplers - finished.
This didn't come out at all as I expected.
First the two colors of the trees are DMC 733, and DMC 734. In real life, the colors stitch as nearly the same. In the photo it looks like two colors, and this is a terrible photo.
Second, there is an off white, cream color that is added to the tree bases, and the stars.
That didn't work for me at all, so it was un-stitched from those areas.
I'm not going to bother with the border stitches.
It's just one of those patterns that doesn't look like you expect it to look.
I'm glad it happened on a small pattern and not something big with lots of stitching.
So what have you stitched that you were disappointed in??? And why???
