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 was making such good progress on Hannah that I thought I would give her another couple of hours of attention today.

And that is when I found out that I'm one thread off. At the very beginning of the double running.

 Foul language was employed.

It didn't help.

I am pretty OCD when it comes to my stitching, but there is absolutely no way I'm going to rip out all of this work.  I think I'm going to figure out a way to move over one thread in the same general area as the original mistake and just keep on going. I don't think it will be noticeable, and probably no one will ever know.

Except the people who read my blog and myself, and we'll never tell.



  1. I am just as OCD but there is no way I would rip that out. No one will ever know the difference, including us blog readers who will forget about it long before the sampler is complete. It’s looking beautiful!

    1. I just hope I remember where I was--but that's a task for another day. Today I don't want to think about it any more!

  2. It is beautiful, and not worth ripping out for one thread. You can compensate. I have a few samplers hanging on the walls that have a little something here and there, and over time, I forget what or where it was. I love this piece.

  3. OH no don't rip it out .
    Looks beautiful to me.

  4. I won't tell anyone, and I am sure that I will not notice.
