Stitchy weekend

It was a good stitchy weekend. I worked on Songs of the Season, happy with the progress and even a thought cross my mind that maybe I should finish it for Christmas... until I removed fabric from q-snaps... my happiness vanished in a blink of an eye, my heart stopped and brain froze... I was stitching in a wrong direction of fabric! The fabric was turned 90 degrees!!! And I don't have same size/color spare fabric... so here it is - a feast for frogs. All that you can see on the picture on the right - it must be removed. I decided not to frog at the moment, I'm leaving that for a time when my mind and hands will cooperate together. I turned the fabric and started again, from the bottom left corner this time. Here is my 'new' progress:



Now, I do not think I can finish this project for this Christmas but for sure it will be done for the next one. Even though I have to frog a lot I still love this piece and enjoy every motif in it. Who would think I would love quakers so much? Certainly not me!

In 'the between' I was working on Computer Catastrophes


and all was good there. No surprises...

So long my friends,
Evalina

  2. Both your projects look fabulous! I agree, you need to be in the correct frame of mind to do a large amount of frogging. Good luck!

  12. Oh dear! How unfortunate! I am like you when it comes to frogging...leave it for another day when your mind is clear. Well, I love your progress so far! I adore Quaker designs too. They are a lot of fun to make!!

  13. Oh my goodness, I would have fallen over in a faint, lol! I'm glad you just went right on with the restart - I would have shoved it in a drawer for a year or two. You're very brave :D
    It's a lovely project, though - worth a few fluffles!

  14. Oh my God, i had to reply to this one. I am so very sorry for what has happened. What a nightmare. As someone else said here, you are indeed very positive in taking it up right away for correction! I am impressed, i doubt i would have done that myself.

  15. LOL. I did the same thing on my start of Gandalf by Tom Cross (HAED). I had to start over after almost 500 stitches. Still frogging the mistake but carrying on with the new start the correct direction on the fabric.
    We are more alike than we knew.
    I also made good progress on Computer Catastrophes.

  17. Shoot! What an awful thing to discover!!! I never plan on getting anything done in time for a current year's holiday cause I find it never happens. It is lovely though!

  18. Oh no! I'm so sorry that happened to you (again)! Halloween House was turned the wrong way too, but you still had room on the fabric after all. I made the same mistake myself too! Good for you for starting over again in a different corner.

  19. What a shame!! I'm guilty of having done this myself and the thought of all the frogging depressed me. However things weren't nearly as bad as I thought. You'll have all that removed and be back on track in no time!
