Hello friends! I restarted Winnie the Pooh II using a Candamar-DMC conversion. The colors, and the coverage, are much better with the DMC. I began at upper left, worked the first column down to the midline of the chart, feathering into the next column. I also got a start on the 2nd column. This is tree, sky, and a bit of tree trunk.
I'm so happy with the look and I'm really enjoying the chart. It has lots of color changes, but it's not confetti. However, there is a problem: I spaced it wrong. Now I don't have enough room at the bottom, I'll have to crop the last row. That's not a huge deal and I'm not sure it's worth re-starting yet again. I did sew some extra to the bottom to allow for scrolling and framing. Any thoughts- should I crop or start over?
ETA: I did more counting and measuring. The kit says 12" high. The way I placed it, is for 12". However, my gridding comes out larger, about 14". The fabric, supposedly 28 count evenweave, is not! It's 28 across, but only 24 down. I am quite cheesed off!
