SBQ: Starting Over?

Posted by Cyn | Posted in Needlework | Posted on 14-02-2008


The Stitching Bloggers' Question of the Week is:

Do you have any projects that you have scrapped and started over? What made you start over from scratch?

Celtic Cross designed by Deb Davis for Y-Knot Designs

I can only remember one, and I restarted it at least twice, maybe three times. It was the Celtic Cross designed by Deb Davis for Y-Knot Designs. I think I tried starting with one of the corners, but kept finding myself off a bit, so I frogged everything and started from the middle, as I usually do. I still kept getting off by just a thread here or there, so I do think I frogged all that again, then started from the center again but working in a different direction. I'm very pleased with how it turned out, but I think it was the last piece I did on linen instead of evenweave.

I nev­er do man­age to real­ly start in the mid­dle of a chart­ed design. I almost always spend a sil­ly amount of time match­ing the chart to the fab­ric, then start­ing in the upper-left corner. 

I don’t think I could list all the things I’ve scrapped and start­ed over. Frankly, it’s so frus­trat­ing when I do, I try not to think about it too much!
