Cross stitch bucilla 42760 footprints kit help!

Posted by shiela_anna (My Page) on

Just bought Cross stitch bucilla 42760 footprints kit and it came with threads that arent labeled with numbers/colors , theyre not separated at all, so i tried to separate them and figure out, then by the time i separated the threads, which took so much time :(, i looked at the cloth, its so small. Is this normal? I tried forllowing the directions but it wasnt looking good. Has anyone done this before? Any advise on how its really done? The last time i bought a kit, it came with threads already labeled, but not this one.

I just found this site so if you've already got it, good for you. If not, most of the time, when a kit doesn't have the threads already labeled, there is an extra sheet of paper or a section in the instructions that tells how to separate the threads. It will list the thread color and how many strands of that color are in the bundle. If there is more than one bundle it will define and identify "bundle 1", "bundle 2" and so on. Usually one bundle will have white and the other will have black to help keep them straight. I make my own thread palettes out of old manilla file folders. I cut them about 2 1/2-3 inches wide and punch holes down either side. as you figure out each color, label it with either the name or the number. (I use the name of the color.) Hope this helps.
