Here's the pic of the piece I am abandoning due to multiple mistakes (marked by red "X"s)
|multiple counting errors in cross stitch|
Since I call my mistakes "learning opportunities" what have I learned other than counted cross stitch isn't always easy?
- I need to stick to easier designs when on my good pain meds.
- Dark color charts are difficult to read ... I may need to get one of those magnetic boards with a line bar magnet to keep track of where I am on it.
- On difficult or dark (or both) charts I should probably count three times instead of two. Then again, even that doesn't help when I accidentally skip a line.
- Definitely let the floss untwist more ... those twist-tangle knots are extremely irritating.
Now to choose a color I have a lot of on hand this time ...
