Mary Wigham: Part 9


Cathi noted that we might have to go back to remedial counting classes to help us minimize our most frustrating UN-stitching adventures detours in our needlework projects. The thought is rather humbling (and somewhat disturbing) to me because in my mind, I didn’t need to re-take any remedial Math courses. In my other life, I had tackled Advanced Differential Equations! That aside, Cathi’s suggestion was taken to heart. I broke out these books to brush up on my counting:


You can see here I went the extra mile in my counting review to make sure I can count beyond 10 without much difficulty:

Equipped with my re-acquainted counting skills, I went back to stitching my Mary, and you can see the progress. Those remedial counting classes really helped! I didn’t have to un-stitch as much. Cathi was right, I did need to go back to taking remedial counting class:


Those half-urns really “spoke” to me. I love love love classic-looking urns, and stitching the motifs with urns was most enjoyable to me:



Now, how about some REAL ornamental urns for your viewing enjoyment?



Thanks for popping by. Happy Day, and Happy Stitching to you! Just a suggestion, if the misfortune of having to un-stitch befalls you, you might just need to stop and take some remedial counting classes. They really worked for me, and they might for you too! :) Thank you, Cathi!

  1. LOL!! Whatever it takes to get those stitches right! They don’t call it COUNTED Cross Stitch for nothing!

    Mary’s looking so fine.

  2. Thanks for the advise. I have a sampler cross stitch that I started years ago, that went awry :-( I just put it aside, but I would love to go back and see if I can figure out where I messed up.
