Hello Fellow Stitchers,
One step forward and two steps backward is my summary of my latest Mary progress!
Do you see anything amiss in the pictures?
The placement of my flower sprig is WAY OFF!! Can you believe I have been going on with life for at least three weeks and not even realized it?
I am a terrible stickler to plans — so, without hesitation, I knew I was going take out the stitches. It took me hours to take those stitches out because they were stitched one over one on a 32-count linen. What a royal waste of time — the time I could have used to actually ADD stitches to my Mary. All that done, I am still stuck in part 1. You can see the latest of my Mary:
I guess sometimes life is such that when we take a step forward, we ended up taking two steps backward. But if we keep at it, we will eventually get to where we have set out mind. You can see I am quite desperate to find some solace in coming up with a deep philosophical thought to lessen the pain from having take out my 2-1/2 week’s worth of work! :( Thinking of
Vicki who has had to take out stitches on her cat a couple of months ago helped me persevere through hours of un-stitching. I guess our trials aren’t unique to just us after all.
Thank you for popping by. I hope you have great stitching day – whether you are doing real stitching, or just stitching your story of life in general!
p.s. If you have had the misfortune of having to take out stitches, I find that using a piece masking tape to dab over the area you have un-stitch cleans up the residual fluff from the floss quite nicely.
