Golden brown

I visited HobbyCraft today and bought a Lion King counted cross stitch kit of cub Simba. (If you did a double-take at the thought of me doing something so girly: didn't your mother tell you it's rude to stereotype?)

It comes with all the thread you need to complete the project. However, according to the enclosed list this means I have to work out which of the bundled-up lengths of thread is Pale Pink, which is Medium Pink, which Dusky Coral and which Dark Coral. I wouldn't mind, but all these different pinks take up a few millimetres of Simba's nose and mouth. And even when those are sorted I still have to work out the difference between Tan Brown and Dark Gold, not to mention Yellow and Straw Yellow.

Should've gone for a tiger kit instead.
