I haven’t worked on this for a while, trying to get all the projects done in May. So it’s time to get back to work each Sunday, filling in more of the areas of this design.
I think I mentioned when I started this piece that I didn’t really like doing all of the border before I start on the piece. What if I make a mistake? I won’t want to tear it all out. Anyway, the last few times I worked on this, I worried that there wasn’t enough room for all of the design that I still needed to stitch across the bottom half of the piece. I brought this down last night, pulled out the instructions and the photo of the entire piece as Carolyn had stitched it. You guessed it – I made a mistake in the outside border. Now I have to decide how to continue – tear out two whole borders and part of the two that I’ve already stitched next to? Try to adapt the pattern to fit the border as it is stitched? I’m discouraged and tempted to put it back in the closet and ignore it for right now.
Here is how it looks today after I did 2 more small areas this morning.
