Well, folks, (previous project post to jog your memory) I started back on my Castelo Branco bird. There were some unfortunate mishaps. The lighter yellow to the right is earlier work. You can see the sudden color change where I started back up. I’m not sure what happened – did I pick up the wrong yellow? It’s definitely a possibility, because it’s been a while since I touched the project. Oops.
Since I already needed to fix the problem, I thought I’d begin again more carefully at the left, with two strands instead of three. I don’t know if it’s all the practice I’ve had stitching since last time, the change in the number of strands, or that I started using a thread conditioner (which I love), but it looks much, much better. So, that’s staying and the older work is going.
