Yes, I'm channeling Scooby Doo because I've made a mistake and I need some help.
I'm ready to start stitching G - Gifts from my "Snowmen A....Zzzz" project and have run into a snag.
I decided to do my blocks on Kona Snow, cut a handful of squares and prepped them for stitching. I've completed those letters and now I'm ready to move on to do more prepping and stitching. Guess what? The Kona Snow I have does not match the Kona Snow I've already used. I took a swatch to Joann's to purchase more yardage and brought home a yard that does not match either. There's definitely a dye lot difference - I know that all whites, snows, creams, etc are not created equal - ACK!!!

I'm at my wit's end here because I don't know what to do. Should I just go buy lots of yardage and start anew? Should I use the new Kona Snow and hope it doesn't matter when the whole project is completed?
I've considered using the new Kona Snow (need to go purchase more) and then when the whole project is completed put it in a dye bath with a teeny, tiny drop of tea or coffee (just enough to make everything blend).
I'm a fast stitcher so I'm tempted to just start all over again - big, big sigh!
What would you do? Help, please!!!!
It's been a very frustrating day.
(I'm tempted to scratch the whole project)
I hope your day was pieceful - mine was not! :-(
