WIP Jenny Bean Halloween...need tip on thread sorting


I'm going to stitch this wonderful sampler.

Its a great piece not just for Halloween.

 

Here's my fabric and threads.

The threads on the left I had no problem with.

Nightmare, Dried Blood, and Sarcophagus were pretty easy to tell.



 








These were the ones I can't figure out.

They are: Coffin Lid, Witch's Wort, Swamp Water,

Zombie Flesh and Burial Ground

yet they all look so much alike.

You gotta be kidding me!? They didn't label those for you? Sorry, I'm no help at all but geesh, that's irritating.

If I remember correctly from when I stitched this, there were descriptions of the colors on the chart ~ I used those descriptions to help figure out which was which.

What the! I would contact the supplier you might have just got a dud batch that missed getting labeled.

Hi Patti,
If you want to shoot me your email I will take a picture of my grouping and send to you so you can get a real close up. I am having a hard time seeing yours. I remember when I got my thread packet that I had to e-mail the company to figure one of them out. E-mail me if you are interested in a picture that you can zoom in and out.

Been studying my threads with yours and this is what I come up with.
Going left to right:
1. Zombie Flesh
2. Witch's Wort
3. Swampwater
4. Coffin Lid
5. Burial Ground

1 and 2 are almost identical. The Witch's Wort is a just a little darker.

The Swampwater has a grayish/dk green tone with the brown.

The lightest more golden is the coffin lid.

#5 I am positive is Burial Ground.

Hope this helps.

Good luck! Nancy

I have this kitted up
I have what nancy has also
I thought I would look and give you what I have, but nothing is marked, so it is kinda hard to describe. Maybe if you have the colors in your stash, you can compare.
Good luck!!

I wouldn't do well with that either! Those colors are definitely so similar. I have that sampler too but my old eyes might not cooperate by the time I get around to it!
