I spent a few hours working on Merry Christmas Heart last night and I'm pleased with the progress I've made. All three colors of braid/floss have now shown up on the heart, and the light lavender color doesn't look so washed out when it's used in a bolder swath of color as seen below:
While practicing with the digital macro zoom I found one error that I didn't notice last night, now I have to go back, rip it out, and re-stitch it. Fortunately it's close to the edge so I won't have to rip too much out.
So, have you made your e-Week purchases yet? I haven't. I'm waiting to see if Strawberry Girl shows up in the early morning sales on Saturday and Sunday before I order.
