But the 613 has to go. From a short distance, there is no definition of the skin, brows, and beard. I used the same thread as charted but it doesn't look it.
Not sure if adding a 3/4 stitch of white around the eyes was the right move, but regardless, it has to go. 644 or 822 may be the color but I won't know until I pull the floss. The linen color really has nothing to do with it. So disappointed. I tried several darker and lighter shades for the face but nothing created enough contrast.
But the bright spot, I learned about 3864 which was never a contender for fleshtone. I'm so glad I finally made a trip to JoAnn's and purchased this color to follow the chart because I've always disliked the very pinkish face color of my PS Santas. This shade is perfect. Pink but not really, tan but not really. This will be my Santa face color from now on, no more pink predicaments.
And as we think about our blessings at Thanksgiving, I have a request. Stop the fricking hate speech. I am sick and tired of hearing about division from people that insult, name call, and CREATE even more than we have experienced these last several years. I know people that voted for Trump (one is my 92 year old aunt), some lifelong Democrats in their 80's, that have given to others their entire life. They do not deserve to be called racists, idiots, ignorant. It is their right, just as it is yours, to vote their choice. If you want your right respected then start respecting theirs. Those that call people dividers and haters can't see that they are the same. If the outcome was reversed, and Trump won the popular vote, would you still insist the electoral college be thrown out? Please don't divide your friends and family over this.
Rules for this year's holiday - turkeys free of hormones and antibiotics, dinners free of politics, guests free of insults, children free of hateful displays, hearts free of hostility.
Thanks for visiting.
Have a blessed Thanksgiving.
