    What a shame Abi, after all the time you spent stitching on it.

    Thanks again for the offer of help Chris and Wendy

    I didn't manage a single stitch today on anything we decided to re decorate the hall way so we stripped all day and I'm aching all over now Tomorrow evening I'm going to have a go at the scarf and see what happens, there's nowt to lose
    Abi.....


    I used to be indecisive but now I'm not sure

    I had a go at the scarf and used a less in your face Orange and blended it with 1 strand of metalic gold As I got further down the scarf I increased the intensity of the orange to try and match to the red threads lower down. The metalic gold only slightly shows but it's toned it down well and doesn't twinkle too much I'm uneasy about her face as well so I'll decide whether it's a keeper or not once thats stitched.

    Feel free to be honest girls I put a big pic up so you can see better.

    You are quite the artist, Abi! I think her scarf looks lovely, so now it just depends on how you like her face. I remember the changes you did to your Japanese Lady, and you improved the chart immensely. Let us see her face when you have stitched it, and we'll give more opinions!

    Thanks girls I cause loads of work for myself by being so picky but GK patterns have spoiled me I think

    Abi, you have to be happy with your project or you will not finish it and of course there is a lot of work that goes in to these and the time it takes you really want to enjoy doing it and not only that there is the cost of the materials too so changing it to make you happy is the best. As for GK spoiling you - they have spoiled us all
