This week’s was suggested by Kimberly and Lili and is:

How do you feel about staying totally true to a pattern?

Usually I stay totally true to a pattern but sometimes, if I don’t like some part or colour of it I change it without any problem (as you can see from my TOM MOUSE, I didn’t like its nose so I haven’t stitch it!!!)

Do you feel that you have to rip out stitches to fix a mistake or do you feel it’s acceptable to incorporate a mistake into the design?

It depends on the seriousness of the mistake, if I can I incorporate the mistake in the design….if it’s too glaring I rip out the stitches and re-stitch it (in that case I get quite angry with myself!!)

Just yesterday evening while I was stitching Happy Birthday Lottie I made a glaring mistake !!sob!! and I have to rip out a big bit of stitch work….damn!! So my progress on it are still small….if I want to finish it on time I’ve to work hard on it!!

Furthermore the symbol chart is hard to be read!! The symbol are really small and dark!! I have a lot of difficulty to read it, I have to highlight what I’ve done if I want to finish it without making a lot of mistakes!!!(this remember me SBQ of Cathy!!)

Some days ago I received my first hand dyed fabric from Silkweaver,on is Lemon and one is Winter Sky. I would like to take part in Silkweaver Showcase if I mange to stitch something …I’m think to stitch on Winter Sky fabric the Tatty Teddy pattern on October Cross Stitcher issue if it will arrive to my home soon!!!

Yesterday I’ve bought “The Collection” the last CD of Alanis Morisette( it’s the first Cd I’ve been bought for 6 years)…it’s wonderful …I love very much her music…

Your Tatty Teddies will be lovely on the winter skye fabric, I'm a little bit envious right now!
