The piece I have been working on...Quaker Christmas II...was coming along nicely. I had finished page one, and was trying to decide whether to continue across or down the design. That's when I finally looked closely and realized what a big mistake I had made. This is a companion piece to Quaker Christmas, and I just assumed that the dimensions would be the same, wider than longer. Well, you can see where I am going here. I was very very wrong. This piece is longer, rather than wider. My fabric is big enough, just going the wrong way! I just about cried. The only thing I can do now is rip out all my stitching and start over, but I just don't have it in me right now.
So, I have decided to pick up a different piece for this SAL. On January 1, I barely started A Stitcher's Resolution from Heartstring Samplery. This is the piece I will be working on from now on until it is finished. Here is what it looked like on that first day (I haven't stitched on it since). I am hoping to get some more stitches in this weekend.
Onward and forward and all that....always read your patterns carefully before starting a project. Never assume. I know I never will again!
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
