I Forgot about Slow Stitching on Sunday

Holidays are enjoyable but I get totally off track as to what day it is. It feels like I've had three Saturdays in a row which is why it surprised by the fact that today is actually Sunday not Saturday. Sheesh - I am getting old - LOL!

Anyway I did get a bit more stitching done on my BBD Forget Me Not - the alphabet is finished.

However it isn't stitched exactly as the chart call for. See that P - it is down one stitch further than it should be. So just take it out and re-stitch it, right?

Ummm, it was too late for that as I had counted off  and stitched the two rows underneath based on the placement of the P and that was waaaaay more than I was willing to frog. Okay, I thought no problem I can live with it... and I'm going to, but in order to give the birds in the last row a little head room I needed to make the whole sampler one stitch longer. I extended the inner zig zag border by one stitch and then added a row to the bottom of the urn so everything ends up on the same line.

I'm hoping to finish this one up before next Sunday and I'm ruminating about what to do next. I thought about starting some patriotic smalls but the more I thought about it, the more it makes sense to start on Fall/Halloween smalls. I need to go through my stash and see what is there. I'd love to have a little display of smalls and I love Fall decorating so that would be a great match.

Happy stitching-

  1. I would not have noticed the P was off . Just don't point it out and it will be fine!

  2. A very pretty design and what a good job of adapting!!!!

  3. Carol, your work is beautiful! And I can't believe how quickly you are getting this done! I love this design and have it on my list of BBD cross stitch to do. Love seeing the progress you are making. I think the P being one stitch off is charming.. but understand how everything has to be adjusted.

  4. Regardless of your P, this cross-stitch is quite pretty.

  5. Very pretty, one off or no! I love decorating for fall too.

  6. Prettier and prettier the more you stitch!

  7. I would never even have noticed that change you made! So pretty!
    Thanks for linking up!

  8. Love the blue that you used on the letters - beautiful work!!!
    Happy Stitching

  9. The colors are great --- love the blue
