To frog or not to frog?

After finishing the Mystery Inc figures (see my last post) for elder son, younger son is now pestering me for his Star Wars one.

I haven't enjoyed these projects. Something to do with the dark blue aida which is stiff to work with. But I decided I would put everything else to one side and get this done. I thought there were just two or three evenings work left.

Imagine my horror last night as I was packing needle and thread away and saw this:

Can you tell what I did wrong? Clue: I had already stitched Luke Skywalker and C3PO a few weeks ago.

Yep, I've switched from 3 strands to 2.

I really don't want to frog but I think R2D2 looks kind of washed out next to the others.

What do you think?

I have finally decided to get my DMC threads in order so have bought some plastic bobbins. At the moment they look like this:

Can't wait to get winding! I love being organised. I hope they will fit in my little wooden box (which still needs a project for the lid *sigh*)

Until next time, hope your stitching is frog-free,

I hate frogging! So, I think it doesn't look bad like that, but it's your choice... xoxo

Big hugs x

I didn't notice anything and still don't even after you said that you stitched with 2 strands instead of three. I know it's probably more noticeable in person, but I doubt I'd rip it out. :)

Good luck with the bobbin winding!

I think the 2 strands looks just fine Justine. I would have never noticed if you hadn't said anything.

Don't frog - it looks great and even though you pointed it out, it still looks great:) I too have a bag of floss that need to be on bobbins, most of my flosses already on bobbins and in containers. Good for you.
love Annette

Sorry, I'm a control freak so I would frog... just for my personal piece of mind :) Now, obviously it is left entirely up to you :D

I started this one too! I would leave R2D2 as is, but I would frog all the white on Princess Leia and use 3 strands on her. I love the blue fabric. I'm also using blue!

If you haven't done anything yet, don't worry about it! I did even notice and I'm sure he won't either!

I have a big bag of floss for my HAEDs and I'm not looking forward to all that winding.
