This is what happens when you don't finish your work in a timely fashion.
You run out of thread. I'm not sure how long this has been kitted up, but as you can see it was a little too long. The thread I was using is discontinued.
After an extensive search, I thought I had something close enough. When you just hold it up to the already stitched part it looks like a pretty good match but when I actually stitched it, not so much. The difference is more noticeable in person than in these photos. So, option A is keep stitching with the not-quite-right thread or option B is taking it all out and starting over with something I can get now.
In other news, it is just too hot to do much around here. My little weather text this morning says 'record breaking heat'. Ugh. Hope you are all indoors with the a/c cranked up!
