As you all know, I make my share of mistakes but at this point, well . . I’ll just not say what I think. It’s time to either accept that I’m going to have to check and double check every stitch I make or chalk it up to an expensive experience and throw it all in the trash.
Last night I posted this picture.
A very nice blog reader sent me an email that there was a mistake in the border over the right wing of the bunting I’ve started. Dang it! That is a LOT of stitches that have to come out. I was beating myself up for making a mistake, especially after complaining about the mistakes in the chart.
I ripped it all out and started re-stitching it. It’s ANOTHER mistake in the chart! I’m at the point now where I’ve done these few stitches and have ripped out about twice as much as is left stitched.
Do I keep stitching and checking every single thing on the chart? That isn’t relaxing . . that’s like work! There are so many projects I want to stitch, I’m not sure I have the desire to go any farther with this one. I’m second guessing every stitch on this chart, which takes way longer to stitch.
OK . . I either go on and shut up about it or throw it all in the trash and forget about it. I’m not going to mention this project any more. I’m not even going to show my progress if I decide to keep going with it.
