As said last time...I lost a color for Amsterdam. In addition to that I ran out of a color. Which never happened to me before. And no answer to any of my emails from Thea Gouverneur or whoever works for her. That they don't do a thing of a lost color, ok, that's my fault, but running out of a color already, that's rather uncommon. And shouldn't happen for a rather pricey kit.
To say that I wasn't thrilled is the understatement of the year. But then I thought...I don't have the time nor the patience for that type of negativity in my life.
I still thank the day where I bought a DMC color card with real thread. I sat down (for 2 days!!!) and matched each and every of the 124 colors (125=braid) After that it was easy to determine the missing color. It had to be DMC 640 or 642. 642 was another symbol already so it had to be DMC 640. Phew.
Oh...couple of days later I found the missing color back...LOL. Doesn't take away I ran out of DMC 839 though.
If anyone stitching this design ever runs out of a color and into the same problem of non existing customer service, give me a shout. I'll be able to help..lol...I matched them all.
Enough of that....I managed to put a few stitches in it and will enjoy the rest of this beautiful design
There was one thing that really brightened up my day: a darling ornament sent to my by Elisa. Her stitching and finishing are just gorgeous. LOVE it. I was her partner in the Hooked on Exchange Quaker ornament round and was very lucky she got my name. :)
My ornament went to Anne, whose favorite color is blue :)
