finished x-stitch

I finished three cross-stitch designs in three weeks. I really like how they turned out. However, I would never buy a pattern from that company again. First off, there was no easy way to differentiate between the colors when sorting the thread. Usually they have easy to match names like “light pink, dark pink, pink” or tell how many strands of each were included. This kit had names like “opal mist, camomile, flamingo, etc.”. Some were easy to figure out, like flamingo. But I had to redo half the star fish because I assumed opal mist was a whitish color, not a pink one. Opals are usually basically white, not pink. Then on the next one I did, the sand dollar, three of the colors used weren’t even listed on the chart! The symbols were used on the chart, but they didn’t tell what color you used for them. On the third one, the scallop, they put the writing that says “Scallop” on it a line lower than the other two. I could have changed it, but I wasn’t sure if they actually did that because I had the other two at home and I was at Joe’s and wanted to finish it.
