I picked out some linen from my stash and did a floss toss. Looking good! (I realize you may quibble with a color or two, but trust me, IRL the fabric is darker than all the light beige colors.)
But here’s the thing. Bright needle charts are mostly stitched over one. So I went along and started stitching over one. What happened to my colors? Clearly one little strand of floss does not look true to the color that appears on the bobbin. Which I think I knew once...
Seriously, can you even tell I’ve stitched anything in that picture?
So I started again. I had a choice of a yellowish-ivory linen and a not-quite-white linen. Both will no doubt have colors getting “lost” so I chose the white, I figure if something blends in, I can throw in some backstitching.

Thank you for your lovely comments on my old year wrap up and my New Year plans. I hope I live up to it!
