This weekend I planned to stitch. Sometimes life gets in the way of stitching and that is what has happened to me lately. As much as I LOVE stitching, designing....it is not my full time job. In my other life I am an Executive Director for a non-profit. I LOVE it too! So some times I don't get to design and stitch as much as I'd like to....Back to the planning to stitch this weekend.... I live in South Texas and it is HOT most of the time. So to my further enjoyment, we had a small, I'm going to say cool front, not cold front. But it did get into the upper 50's at night :)! Anyway, Saturday morning I got up with big plans to finish half of my new design and then it happened! I noticed the top part of my border seemed to be out of wack. After further review, I realized I would have to take out most of the top portion of the border. So I frogged and frogged.....finally finished. Now to start re-stitching....re-stitched the top, then off to the left side, stitched half of that border. It was late when I finished on Saturday night...my eyes were tired. Sitting in one place with minor breaks for a practically a day is hard work! I thought I'll finish this to tomorrow.
Sunday morning....the sun is shining, it is cool and I finish up a few things around the house and get ready to tackle my new design.....I pick up the piece and realize that I have stitch the entire border in the wrong color of green!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Needless to say, I spent the afternoon frogging again.....I couldn't live with the new color green! When this piece is complete and framed, I know I will forget the pain it has caused me.... because this is not the first time I have frogged!
Hope you have a great week! Maybe next post, I'll be able to show you some fruits of my labor.
