The Part of Cross Stitching That No One Likes To Do

UGH!!! Ok, so I have been working on Song in Your Heart. I stitched the entire blue border around the edge of the design. And then started stitching some of the flower pieces around the frame of the pattern. It was going great! I got all the way across the top of the frame, then down the right side of the frame, and then it happened ... somewhere I screwed up bcuz I didn't have enough room for the last stitch on the right side! So I went thru ALL of the little flower pieces that I had already stitched. And they appeared to be right. Then my husband checked them all (yes he stitches too occasionally). They were right. Then he checked the outside border. OMG! There it was. The sides of the border were one stitch too short. So now where am I on this pattern? Tearing out 217 stitches all the way across the bottom of the pattern ~ UGH! This is the part of cross stitching that no one likes to do, tearing out stitches, also known as "frogging". Especially so many of them ~ lol. Oh well so is the world of cross stitching. ☺

Current Stitching Projects

Currently I have 5 projects that I am working on. Of course, I do still have some unfinished projects that I'm not working on at the moment. But 5 that I am actually working on. One is a little piece that is a beaded christmas pin by Mill Hill called Wintertime Snowlady. Lots of beadwork, which is fun. Then I have a baby announcement piece that will fit in a 5x7 frame once it's finished. I also have a piece that is called Song in Your Heart that I am making for my best friend. Then three pieces that I am making for myself, but also that I plan on entering into the state and county fairs, called Elemental Cosmos and Elemental Masks and America the Beautiful. Here are pictures of Song in Your Heart, Elemental Cosmos, Elemental Masks, and America the Beautiful that I am working on. I will post some pictures of my progress later on.
