7/2/11 Update

Got some more work done on "Wild Thing" these past few days.  I'm really loving working on this project again!

The two solid colors of the wood border are completed, so all that's left to do now is blend them together and fill in the gaps.  You can also see the beginnings of the lion in the top left corner.

I've discovered that I am a bit of a thread snob!  Since this project was previously completed using a kit, I still had some of the Dimensions threads left over.  I am supplementing the leftover thread with the corresponding DMC floss colors.  The difference between the two are are astounding!  The Dimensions thread feels very "hay" like and doesn't lay as flat as the DMC does.  I think I'll just stick with the DMC for the rest of this and maybe use the Dimensions for practicing embroidery or something.

By Monday, I'm planning on switching over to work on Cinderella for a week.  I have got to get that one finished so I can start working on the Beauty and the Beast kit... that I don't have yet... but will buy myself once I'm halfway done.  Oh, Joann's is calling out to me!! Must stay home and stitch!

Have a great Independence Day weekend!  Remember to say a thank you to those who serve our country!  To my little brother Josh (who is completing some training in Texas right now) I love you and I'm so proud of you!

That's funny. You sound like me with the OCD on the thrread thing. If they dont match, I wont use them. I kept saving a lot of thread but then realize they dont match so I threw most out. The Cinderella & Beauty ones are so pretty looking. I might try those after I have all the rest of my 3 projects done. Can't wait to see my Cindy updates. Both porjects look great!

I agree most kit threads are just plain garbage!!!
