What'd you think she does; sell seashells? :-D
So, I got some new threads (all LizBeth, 20) in the mail today!!! *HUGE smile* I couldn't figure out ones to play with first and ended up going with Seashells (114) and the supposedly matching Shell Pink lt (626). I like the color of Shell Pink Lt, but I don't like it with Seashells... it doesn't match ANYWHERE near as well as I expected.
...If I would have known that Seashells would look so bad with the solid, I would NOT have ordered it. It doesn't have the "antique" look that I was expecting... much brighter. I am NOT happy with it. :-/ ...That's what I get for having high expectations for something with purple in it, I guess. Blah. Well, at least I have a ball of thread that I won't mind wasting now. :-) If I can find a color that looks better with it, maybe I'll just make a whole bunch of bookmarks with it so I can be done with it. ;-)
So, has anyone else ordered these two threads and noticed that the Shell Pink Lt. has a much more "antique" coloring than the pink in Seashells? THAT'S the pink I wanted to see... Not what I got... :-/ Oh well. Live and learn, right? ;-)
Well, that's enough of my complaining and rambling! :-)
