Thread colors are not as pictured
on November 3, 2013
I recently started to stitch this kit, and I am not happy with the thread colors, especially the skin tone colors. The little girl's back, legs and upper arms are very dark, not as shown on the package. I am considering ripping out the skin areas I already stitched and replacing with other thread. This is a very unusual problem in my experience of counted cross stitch.
Update December 16 - I have continued to stitch this kit, and I have to say that the entire scene uses darker thread colors than shown in the picture. It is still attractive but not nearly as much as the original depiction. For example, the sky appears like fluffy clouds in the picture with the kit, but in reality using the thread that was supplied, it looks like a storm is coming. I will finish the piece, but I might have to leave the finished piece out in direct sunlight for a couple months to get it to fade down to a better color shade.
