I have mixed feelings about kits. On one hand, I love being able to get started without having to fuss around gathering supplies. On the other hand, I seem to run out of floss all the time. It must be the way I stitch…
The other day I started Love, a kit that I picked up from Enchanting Lair ages ago. Laura is always very generous with her kits, so I have no idea why I ran out of the Needle Necessities Sweet Peas for the centre hearts. And, as you may know, Needle Necessities closed down years ago. Ugh.
Anyway, I’ll be ordering some Threadworx in Roxy, which is supposed to be the equivalent colourway. It will be interesting to see how close a match it actually is. I know I will need to make allowances for dye lot differences, but I still wonder how similar it will actually be. Hopefully I won’t need to rip out any of the stitching I’ve already done.
Do you have experience mixing Needle Necessities and Threadworx of equivalent colourways? If so, how did it go for you?
