I love the design and the thread colors. But you didn’t send enough blue or lighter purple threads for the piece. Luckily I had some blue from another kit that worked. I had to use fewer than the recommended 5 strands of purple to have enough. You need to make sure you send sufficient threads with the kit.
Thank you for the helpful feedback, Mary. Adding the correct amount of yarn to these pre-made kits is always challenging since everyone's techniques vary. We will be sure to pass this feedback on and make necessary adjustments in future kit designs. We're glad you were still able to finish the project with your other yarns!
