Yesterday I was stitching along . . last line of the text on A Sampler for all Seasons. Thank goodness I looked at what I had just stitched before going farther.
It was supposed to say “It makes me” but the word “much” is a couple of words down in that sentence. I wasn’t paying attention stitched the “m”, looked on the chart to see what was next and saw the “u” in much and stitched it. I’m so surprised and thankful that I didn’t finish the sentence and then have to figure out why there was so much more space than there was supposed to be and have to do even more ripping.
I did get the “e” stitched on the end of true but was trying to hurry and get the picture and my numbers posted in the May Madness group because I was afraid our power was going to go off. I could see me asking Vince to bring in a solar generator so I could get online and post my cross stitching numbers. He would have done it but I doubt he would have seen the necessity of having to do it. Our power didn’t go out but north and east of us (Jasper and Carthage), they seem to have had a good bit of storm damage. I think there were trees down in Joplin too. I haven’t gone outside to see if we have anything down but the wind didn’t seem bad here at all.
Totally understand the looking at the wrong m, I am prone to stitch under the wrong leaf!
Curious, do you stop and start thread between words? I assume you do not stop and start a thread within a word.
I haven’t tackled any sentences since re-starting my love of cross stitching.
Alphabets yes, love samplers!

I am curious to know this also!
Honestly, I had to look at the back to see! Am I crazy or what? I will do a blog post about it because it really depends on where I end one letter and where I start the other one.
Nice save! I like the poem, too.
