Oops!

Pulled out Northwind this morning to see where I wanted to stitch this coming week. And in counting out snowflakes I stumbled upon this mistake!


See that top right curly-q? Now look at the pattern - it's not where it's supposed to be. Decision time - keep it or rip it. I, in all my laziness, decided it should be kept and I'd re-arrange the snowflakes around it AND also stitch the curly-q where it belongs.

Guess my cloud is blowing a bit more wind than the others. Ah, the joys of counting while on pain meds! lol

Oh, and I finished the Raven this morning. Do you see a pic? No. Why? Again with the lazy thing - camera in the dining room, stitching in its room, and I'm in the living room.

And to everyone on the east coast - be safe and stay dry!

OH it's ok, that little gust of wind is the one with the snow.
Be always in stitches.

That is such a cute design! I'm really enjoying seeing it develop.

Not all winds blow the same. Your will still be lovely I'm sure. Can't wait to see the Raven.

I think you made the right decision - doesn't the wind blow a bit harder there on the Riverside? (And, no, I'm not saying you're full of hot air!)

Last two days I have been playing FROG a lot with a sampler I am working on . . . guess I should have checked the words on the pattern before I started . . . I forgot the word RED when I made the pattern . . . LOLOL . . .glad I have a while before the baby gets here for his one :0}

Lots of progress on Northwind Denise! Sometimes its better to work with the mistake (if you can) than rip it out. I can't even tell that your cloud is blowing more smoke than the picture, so I'm sure its going to be fine! Take care of yourself!

Northwinds is looking great. Don't you hate those pesky frogs? Hopefully your alteration will save you having to unpick to correct the mistake.

I think it looks great! We are waiting for "Irene" to arrive. The rain is just starting so some stitching will be done tonight and tomorrow.

I was hoping Irene would fizzle and give us some rain, but it looks like she's headed back out to sea for now. I like your curlicue right where it is. It's cute. Have fun fudging!! And I can't wait to see your Raven!!

It's not that much to rip out! That would drive me insane but that's the perfectionist in me ;o) I'm sure you can just move the snowflakes around it and it's personalized by you! LOL!
