I had plans for these fabric choices however the Shale which even looks mildly brown isn't. It's a light purple. Less so then DaVinci. The Ale is a muddy brown colour as well not a golden swirl like advertised. I understand from previous purchases that colours shown are not always a match due to the dying process, that doesn't stop the slight disappointment however. I'll just be using it for something else instead the .
The blue Aida I bought to do this Bear Fishing is a better match, though darker then anticipate. Hopefully the blue threads required don't melt into the cloth though. This piece I will do for a customer whose nickname is (Mistahimaskwa ) 'Grizzly'.
The Relief black bear is intended for my husbands birthday next month. It was suppose to be done in the Shale Aida.......
I really like the Remember piece. This photo makes it look darker then the floss choices are. It's quite bold.
