My chart arrived yesterday. I already had the floss from Vikki Clayton so I pulled some fabric I have here. This is the floss on 40 count Light Hazelnut by XJu Designs.
I think I might change out that lightest peach for a bit darker.
The fabric on the left is Light Hazelnut on 36 count and the one on the right is the same color but 40 count. Sometimes the same dye lot will result in different colors on different counts of fabric but I doubt the two I have were dyed at the same time. One came directly from XJu and one came from the Kitten Stitcher. But, you can see the darker floss on the left and the lighter floss on the right.
Here’s how the two flosses look on the 40 count. The above floss is going to blend with the fabric. I can make a few stitches and see what I think. If all the stitches using this color are surrounded by other colored stitches, and not directly against the fabric, I’ll stick with the original color.
If I use 40 count, this piece will finish at 10-3/8 x 13-3/4″. If I add an inch border, it will be 12-3/8 x 15-3/4″ for framing. If I use 36 count, it will finish at 11-1/2″ x 15-3/8″. With the 1″ border, it will be 13-1/2″ x 17-3/8″. I think I’m going to go with the 40 count unless that makes it seem too scrunchy.
I found a couple on Instagram that were stitched on 40 count so I’m going with that.
