See that lovely center square bordered by varieagated waffles? Fantastic, isn't it? I think it took me about four days to get that part in.
Now see everything else?
Well, it's all off by one canvas thread.
There's supposed to be a space between the waffles and the green scotch stitches. This means that all of the scotch stitches are in the wrong place, all of the Rhodes stitches are in the wrong place, and (worst of all) all of the Amadeus stitches are in the wrong place.
So...do I continue stitching and compensate to make up the difference, or do I break out the scissors and a large bottle of tequila and rip it all out and start again?
Rather than take this out to the driveway and back the car over it repeatedly, methinks I will take a few deep breaths and view this entire exercise as a test from the universe. Perhaps she is trying to ask me if I've grown and changed and matured as a human person and learned to accept speedbumps on the path of life.
Or, more probably, she's just screwing with me.
Excuse me, please. I need to be where other people are not for a moment so that I can curse a blue streak without fear of a big fat bar of soap headed to my mouth. Talk amongst yourselves...be back in a flash!
