What to Do?

I started this set of little toolies when we were on vacation over the holidays.  I was using Kreinik #4 in a blue color from my stash.  I had two spools and thought it would be enough, but ran out before finishing the pin cushion.  I thought I could buy another spool when we got home.  Unfortunately, I haven’t found it in any of my usual shopping places. In the  meantime, I went ahead and added the beads to the other pieces.

The other blues I have in my stash aren’t even close to the original I was using.  I could set the pin cushion aside, and finish the other pieces.  I could use a blue that doesn’t match for the rest of the pin cushion, then finish them all.  I could put all of it aside and work on other things until I’m able to find this color.  What to do, what to do?

If I were you I'd set it aside while I looked for the right supplies. I means you DO have other projects to work on! Good luck in making a decision!

...or creatively infill will the matching beads to make it even more interesting : )

It's really frustrating when you run out of something mid project, then can't find it anywhere else! I like the variegated effect of the different blues though, perhaps you could continue in this vein?
