that despite what the instructions say, I will not have enough supplies included to finish my stitchery kit. Yet, here I am once again, nearing completion and faced with a shortage. Where do I keep going wrong, I wonder?
I've already finished stitching three out of the four repeated motifs on this tablecloth, but I'm certain that I'm going to run out of green floss before I'm done. I'm down to less than 30 inches in that colour and I still have a fair amount of the design that needs to be done in green. sigh.
This will be the second time I've used a kit and found myself running short of the threads I need. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that I will be able to find more in the right colour - despite the fact that this kit was picked up from a thrift store (and who knows how old it is?). The craziest part? I have what appears to be MORE than enough in every other colour needed for this design - actually I know I will have full skeins leftover, whereas, I will need more than one skein of green to finish. Does that make any sense? Who determined how much of each skein of colour would be needed - how could their math be so off?
It seems so unfair!
Please tell me if something like this has ever happened to you. It only reminds me of how I never had any luck with boxed cake mixes - they never turned out as well as cake I made completely from scratch. Seriously. Every single time. Who knew you could screw up a cake mix? lol That led to me to make the decision to never buy cake mixes. Thankfully, my homemade cakes do turn out, so we haven't gone without eating cake.
Only, I'm feeling the same lack of love from stitchery kits as I had from those boxed cake mixes.
Maybe, I'm jinxed. ;o)
