Ripped and Restitched

Last night I ripped out the GAST Toasted Barley and replaced it with DMC 318.  I'm much happier with the contrast now.  Based on the comments, I guess I'm not the only one who has experienced the difference between the photo on the chart and the true colors of the actual threads.  I'm glad to have found a color that works even if it's not an overdyed.  I don't think it will make that much of a difference.

I'm excited because it's Hermit Stitching weekend starting tomorrow!  I'm very hopeful that I'll be able to put some decent time into this piece and maybe one of my WIPs.  Are you Hermit-ing this weekend?  You should be!  Just follow the link in my side bar to sign up.

It looks much better this way. I haven't stitched the roof yet and will replace it with something different.
Have a great stitchy weekend.
