A Stitcher's Resolution

Here is my progress on my "new" SAL piece...A Stitcher's Resolution from Heartstring Samplery.

You may remember that I posted a pic the other day Where is the border, you say? Well, when I pulled out my project bag, the thread I was using for the border was missing. I found another similar thread, pulled out what I had stitched and started over. I got a little ways and then realized that the color was really all wrong. I had substituted two colors because I didn't have either of them, but this was so far off  I just knew I couldn't continue on.

So I ordered the two colors from 123Stitch last night, pulled out the border for the second time and just stitched some areas with the colors I did have (the correct ones...I had 4 of the 6 called for). I hope the other threads come before the end of the week because I would really like to take this piece with me on vacation. We'll see. If not, I have two others standing by!



  1. Lynda - a very nice start. Hope you get your missing colors in time for your vacation.

  2. How frustrating. This is a lovely design, Lynda and I have now put it on my wish list. Looking forward to seeing your next progress update.

  3. Aw...I hate when that happens, but it's worth it to frog and be happy with the end results. I love the colors so far! It won't be long before the threads get here and then you can really go to town!
