And another one bites the dust...
This is my long-forgotten UFO, "Delicate Beauties" by Paula Vaughn. I really do love this piece, it just seems that there have been more "important" stitches that needed to be done first. (Wedding Samplers, Gifts for friends and the Wolf for our son. Finally, a couple of weeks ago, I thought it was time to pull out my UFO and make it a WIP...alas, when I started to stitch it, I saw MAJOR, MAJOR, MAJOR (did I mention that there were MAJOR mistakes?) For the life of me, I couldn't figure out why things weren't lining up or how I could fix them. I finally tossed it to my hubby and asked him to see if he could see what I was missing. He found that when the working copy had been made, a few rows had been deleted from each page...therefore, it was disastrous. He felt so bad because he was the one who had made the copies for me and didn't realize how important it was for lines to "line up" and I just took it for granted that it was right. My bad... Bless his heart (and I mean that in the sweetest way, not the other "southern" way). He feels awful and I am a wee bit sad but hey, today is a new day and I'm sure that there will be MANY other new designs that I will just HAVE to stitch. And.... some day, I might just decide that I want to give this beautiful Paula Vaughn design another go.
Hugs and Grace,
