Yep, that’s how I felt a few days ago. Stupid.
Have you ever been stitching along and ended up confusing yourself? BTDT…recently.
I was happily stitching part 4 of my big project (yay!) when I found what I thought was a HUGE mistake. So, I looked at the stitching and I looked at the pattern and I looked at the floss numbers…then I did it all again…something just wasn’t adding up. So, I compared them all AGAIN…and realized that I needed to…gulp…unpick an entire section. What a colossal Pain in the Patootie!
But, I did it and started re-stitching that area in the…ahem…correct color. After I completed the section for the second time, something just didn’t look right. So, I looked at the stitching and I looked at the pattern and I looked at the floss numbers…and something wasn’t adding up…again! That’s when I realized that it was correct the FIRST TIME! So, I commenced to unpick and re-stitch the section AGAIN, double-checking that i was using the correct color.
Now, I’m finally past that section. I was so traumatized that I had to take a day off from stitching just to get my mojo back, lol.
I plan to spend the rest of this afternoon and evening cross-stitching and watching TV. I might do the same thing tomorrow…unless I have to unpick something, then all bets are off!
