STITCH. RIP. CURSE. REPEAT.

Ahhhhh, welcome back, old friend neurosis.  I got myself completely stumped on this piece and couldn't figure out why the stitches weren't matching up.  Turns out, I was off by one lousy little stitch in the striped section, and it threw the whole lot off.

A few hours of ripping and re-stitching and I'm back in the saddle.

And yes, I really did try to compensate rather than rip, but this is me we're talking about and I just couldn't stop the screaming in my head...

  4. It's looking great! An unfortunately sometimes we just can't compensate based upon the design and have to rip...err, I mean "reverse stitch" the piece so that it will look just right. :)

  5. Ooh, I hate the dreaded unsewing too. My present cross stitch project is off by one block in the lower right side. It is a bird's nest, so I'm convincing myself to leave it alone.
