PATIENCE, GRASS HOPP A

I was all set to plow through to the finale' of Tahiti last night, but realized that I had made a major mistake.  See that horizontal orange line on the right?  Well, I screwed up and stitched it under all of the flowers above it.  This meant that the section under THAT was screwed up and the one under THAT...and so on and so on and so on.

Stewey caught wind of what had happened and peered over his reading glasses to say "Mo-ther.  Rather than sit there for eighteen hours trying to figure out how you can fudge things to fit, why don't you just remove the offending sections and fix them?"  Then he went back to reading The New Yorker or whatever the hell else it is that he finds stimulating these days.

So I frogged and re-stitched and am happy to report that we're back on track now.  In all, I think that the detour was about twenty minutes long, as opposed to the above mentioned eighteen hours that would have been.

Today is cold and rainy here in Hoosierville (can I get a big Woo Hoo! from the congregation?), so I will plant my heiney in the Happy Chair and set about the business of getting this one finished.

Happy Futzingday to all!

  3. WooHoo from the Tucson contingent of the congregation! Cold and rainy? I think I remember a day like that a long time ago. We probably won't see rain here until mid July and then it will be a very angry, hot rain. Reading your blog just gives me more stash to stitch! Your Winter Alphabet inspired me so that I had to go out and get it. Well, last night I put the final stitches in it. Thank you for brightening each and every day and enabling my stitch fetish!

  5. HOLEY SHAMOLEY!!! You restitched all that in TWENTY MINUTES??? That explains the sonic boom I heard last night. Glad you're back on track!

  6. The only thing I mind in that situation is the re-embroidering on the linen. It's all floppy and sad the second time around :-) Or the fourth, as sometimes occurs with me....
