ABC Lessons

Here is my progress this week - this is a nice easy stitch, and it's a nice break between Frederick and Angel of Cross Stitch. I have five out of nine rows done. I discovered an error on the letter B block, but I'm not going go back and fix it. The top line of the B is supposed to go one stitch further out (you can kind of see it on the D, the E, the F, the N, and the P). But....I'm okay with it!

And it looks like there's a floating dot for no apparent reason between the P and the l in the word Play (kind of underneath them). It's not as random as it looks - it's a dot over an I in one of the words below - it just happened that it was actually closer to the P and L than it is to the I it floats above, so I decided to stitch it while I was doing those letters.

Now this week I'm back to Angel of Cross Stitch...there will be lots of sighing because it's time to do the border. I vowed I was going to do the border a little at a time but....the best laid plans, as they say!!!

Thanks for checking out my blog, and, as usual, for all your comments!

That fault you're talking about is not really obvious. I had to stare quite a while on it. I think you're very right not to bother. All by all it looks just fantastic.

Looks great!

You have to really look Kathy to see the mistake. Only you will know that it is there. I can see why you don't want to go back and correct it because you would have to move everything over by one row.

I like, and mistakes only matter if they bother you, and it is really hard to tell.

That's always been a favorite alphabet of mine. I look forward to seeing it when it is finished. Is it for you?

We're always so critical of our own work. You'll remember that there's something wrong with the letter B. I couldn't even find anything wrong until I kept looking trying to figure where you were talking about. It looks wonderful just as is!

You would really have to point out that mistake while looking at it for anyone to know. Good luck with the dreaded *border*!!!!

Really, the 'error' looks perfectly OK, really nothing to notice. I love that design - I hope I enjoy stitching it as much as you!

Shelley said...

I think it looks great. I had to zoom in to see what you were talking about on the B.

Jo said...

Looks great, you've had smoking needles. Don't worry about one mistake thats what makes it personal to you...besides most of us didn't notice it until you said!

Katrien said...

Looks great, your mistake is really not that noticable. Good luck on Angel
