Amost Caught Up...

It has been such a hectic month, but I have done some stitching. In fact, I got on a roll with tracing and then had some evenings where I sat and stitched. I really have been enjoying this project... and so glad I have you guys to keep me on track!

So, today I put the next row together and this is what it looks like now:


My only peeve is that on the left of the red checked sashing between the rows, it is crooked - the green line shows up, if that makes sense. Go ahead, click on the photo and see!! So, do I unpick?? Sigh... this is why I don't like using stripes and/or checks usually...

Other than that, I am loving it :) And the little penguin is done, just needs its sashing... photo another day...

Unfortunately once something catches your eye as not 100% it will always do so. Better to redo & well worth it cause it looks wonderful! Tracee xx

I think it looks fantastic but I don't worry about plaids/stripes like that, so like the others said, if it bothers you undo it.

looking good Joy.........I really had to zoom in to see what you don't like..........I say if it bugs you now it will later too..........

Well, I don't see it and I zoomed in. But if it bothers you, you have to fix it. Otherwise, you will always regret it. I love the way it looks so far.
