Hobby Lobby Haul #1

Posted on

This is the first project I decided to work on from my Hobby Lobby clearance finds. I just love the saying because it feels like it sums up my life, pretty much every day. I normally don’t stitch floral designs but I think it just goes so well with the quote. This one should be a quick stitch!

Quick wasn’t quite the word, once I got working on it. The floss that Dimensions gives in their kits is so subpar compared to DMC, and it frays constantly. I also realized that I had counted wrong when doing the lettering, and had to rip it out and start again. Otherwise it would not have been level; part of the letters would have been slightly below the others. When I frogged the area, the floss was unusable. Normally with DMC I can re-use floss after taking it out. I was worried I would run out of the blue color (and I hated working with it anyway) so I substituted my own DMC for the kit floss.

Much better! I think I will try to use the kit floss for the other colors, though.
