Stitching:

This year I am determined to make progress on the project that sat on the shelf in my spare room for eleven years. It at least sits on my coffee table now. This is where I was at three weeks ago.

Last time I had made no progress because of a stressful work time, but thankfully this time I have some progress to show.

The bad news is that I have messed up at the bottom. I think I have put in too many stitches to figure out where the mistake was so I am just going to have to live with it:(. It does bother me though and makes me not want to work on that bottom section:(. I had been doing so well too!

Be sure to check out everyone else’s progress as there are some amazing projects!

  1. When I mess up, If I need to find it, I start from a correct spot above it, and stitch a column that is correct (yes with all those threads) working down until I find the mistake. Once I find it, I can go back and use those loose threads to fill in, and then decide how to handle the mistake. If possible, I stitch over it with the right color, if not, I decide what to do, and then stitch the correct color in the column, adjusting as necessary between it and the mistake. The column gives me a new spot to count from, until I am “out of the woods.” Hope that makes sense!

    1. Oh I like the idea of going down by column. I was having a really tough time of figuring out what was right and what was wrong 😦

  2. Sometimes if I can’t tell where the mistake is, I just let it go. 🙂 But I totally get it — I’m living dangerously with my current project as I’m stitching all of one color rather than in sections and areas; hoping that I don’t mis-count somewhere!

  3. I make so many mistakes on my counted cross stitch projects. I just keep going and somehow they always turn out ok. Just once I’d love a perfect project 🙂

  4. Great progress! I usually make my mistakes work, but finding the area with the mistake will help you make the right adjustments around it 🙂
