In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

I started outlining some of the motifs on Rebecah yesterday.

And I got just a wee bit irritated.

Baby Girl, who is keener of eye and steadier of hand than I am, traced the design onto the linen for me. She followed the sketch we were provided in every detail.

But that doesn't match the photograph showing where the outlining is worked. I know. I checked. Three times on one motif.

This is not the first time this has happened, and I am not particularly happy about it. However, after sleeping on it, and taking three deep breaths, I've decided this is going to be another adaptation rather than a reproduction,

I'm still putting Rebecah in time out for a couple of days.

  1. How frustrating! For what it's worth, I've had some similar issues with Jane Turner where the instructions and/or the chart do not agree with the photo provided. Sigh.

    Your Rebecah is beautiful and will be glorious when finished. And I know it's not the most important bit, but I love how the satin stitch alphabet looks!
