A class I want to try
Embroidery Hoops


I should take my own advice when stitching Kogin patterns. " You should always start in the middle and work the pattern up and down.  I did the first line like that but then thought I would be cute and start at the top to finish the stitching.  You guessed it, I was one stitch out and had to unpick all my work.

So after giving myself a good telling off I got to and finished the stitching.

I now have to block the work and make up the bag.  It is now time to start redrawing the pattern for the second kit.

Oh, I have done that SO many times. I get especially angry with myself if I start CUTTING from the other direction, and make a counting mistake. No way you can undo a wrong cut!!!

At least I can unpick my mistakes. Once you cut that fabric incorrectly it’s for the bin.


How exasperating - but as you say, at least it can be unpicked!
