Ok, Ok, I broke down and started "Kimono - Revisited". After all, I had nothing else to stitch in my project bag EXCEPT pieces that hadn't been started yet (and they still call my name periodically but 'm resisting)... and the weekly TAST and monthly Stash Busting CLub don't take that long that I can fill my stitching time.
So I started outlining... and frogging! I mean, I copied the dratted chart, TWICE! I marked the dratted chart, TWICE. AND still, I missed a place and had to frog. Have you ever tried to remove Kreinik braid from congress cloth? It has to be cut out. AND now my room is filled with little bits of mylar and fuzzy thread from that activity and, if you look carefully, you will see where the braid USED to be because it left the weave slightly distorted upon removal!
Two days, one and a half spools and this is only one quarter of the chart...
I'm using Kreinik's 5003 which is a dark navy (black?) with areas of blue and green in it. Pretty subtle, actually...And the ONLY think I dislike more than stitching with rayon is stitching with braid! AAACK!
So, ladies, are you stitching?
