Do you ever have something you HAVE to stitch on? That's me at the moment. I'm working on a cross stitch piece that I started several years ago and never finished. I decided to finish it and contribute it to my local EGA chapter as one of the items for the drawing at their annual needlework show. I've even convinced a few friends to put in a few stitches on this piece.
What's the problem, you ask? Well, I discovered that I made a big counting mistake on this piece........of course, I hadn't put a note in the bag with the project, so I didn't remember that! Uff da! I spent 3 1/2 hours cutting out all the mistakes. After two hours, I decided to have a glass of wine while cutting. Now usually, that spells disaster. (I think I was secretly hoping to "accidentally" cut the fabric, so it would have to be thrown away.) No such luck, I've successfully removed all the "bad" stitching. Here's a photo of how it looks right now:

Just so you can relate, I had all but two letters stitched into the piece. Not even close now!
Of course, I have something that I really want to stitch on...........it's a "Jane" sampler. I'll show that to you in the next post.
