SBQ: Starting Over?

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?

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.

One thought on “SBQ: Starting Over?

  1. 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!
