Hello stitchy friends.

I've been busy stitching away on 'melicent turner sampler'. I just was checking the row I've been working on and discovered a big blunder.

The row of green should have two stitches between each circle instead of the 1 stitch I used.... I managed to use 2 stitches between the first two circles, but then went on my merry way stitching the rest of the row with 1 between each.

Ok, give me your opinions, I am leaning towards leaving it and moving along. Hate the thought of ripping out the whole row... I know I won't have enough green over dyed floss to finish this. Also, it really isn't going to impact anything.

I'm getting tired of alphabets on this, but think it will look good when it's done. It's been awhile since I've stitched a more traditional sampler.

I was pleased to discover blog lovin is now available for the iPad. So I downloaded the app today. I have just been reading blogs on our desktop computer. But it's nice to have the option of reading on my iPad again.

I have had the day off today in compensation for Monday's holiday. So, it will be a nice weekend break from work for me. We have been busy at the library getting ready for the summer reading program. It starts on Monday.

Our son is planning on moving tomorrow to his new place. So we will be helping. I caught up on the laundry today. I will be sending him off with all clean clothes. It will be up to him now... Lol. My conscience is clear. ;)

So we will have an empty room, I'm sure it won't stay empty for long, we will be able to get some things out of our storage shed and put back in the house.

Well I hope this post finds you all happily stitching away on something wonderful. All of you continue to inspire me with your beautiful projects.

Happy stitching! And thanks for the comments you leave. I love hearing what you have to say.

  1. If you can't really tell by looking at it and it doesn't bother you ~ I'd let it go!! Embrace it and make it yours!!
    Enjoy your weekend!

  2. What I do when I make such a mistake, I just live with it for awhile. If it doesn't bug me too much I leave it. I always remember what the Shakers believed, You need to leave in mistakes because perfection belongs only to God. They actually put a mistake in their quilts.

  3. I think if I had finished the whole row, I would probably just leave it as is. Caught up on the laundry are words I hope to be able to say at least once in my life. :)

  4. I think, I'd leave the little mistake and just stitch on. When you look at reproductions samplers you often find little mistakes made by the original stitchers, and they don't look odd either.
    I hope your son had a smooth move.

  5. Leave the mistake -- definitely not worth fixing. I tend to leave mistakes unless it throws off the design or my counting. If it doesn't, why bother? It looks good so far! Good luck moving your son. Nice to have an empty room!

  6. I would leave it ... it doesn't throw any other part of the design out ... must get this one out and do some more on it too ... forgot about it until now ...
    love your conscience is clear hope he enjoys looking after himself :) love mouse xxxxx

  7. Since it isn't impacting the design, I would leave it!

  8. I would definitely leave it, Melody! None of us would ever have known if you hadn't told us...

    Hope your son is happy in his new place!

  9. If it fits at both sides I would leave it. Who is going to know. It's looking lovely.
