Clara - So Close!

This is how far I've come on Clara:


But I only have one length of the tan thread left!  I need two or three to finish the design.  Doesn't that just stink?!

The really annoying thing is that I made the same mistake twice on the left ear, which wasted exactly the two lengths of thread that I could have used to finish it!

The tan thread is a substitution from the original design, and I also foolishly did not write down the DMC number.  So I will be taking my last threads either down to my stash (fingers crossed) or out to the store to match them.  Wish me luck!

    1. Thanks, Hetty! I think I found it. I may try it later today, but first, some quilting!

  2. Hope you are right about finding it. Somehow streaks don't fit the design!

    1. Yes, it was a good match, and she's done. I packed her away so fast I forgot to take a photo! I'll get her out again tomorrow. LOL.

Thank you for your comment! I love to talk with my readers, and I will reply to every comment, either directly via email or, if you are a "no-reply" commenter, right here under your comment.

Google, however, does not always send me a notification if you have a non-Gmail address, or, if you have strong privacy settings on Google+. So if I missed you, I'm sorry, it wasn't my intention!

Happy stitching!
