|January 1st start|
Around the 6th of the month I discovered that the thread was a little too thick when working over one. So, on January 8th I decided to take out all the stitching that I had previously completed and restart the project.
I have got a bit further now but forgot to take a picture of it. I am happy with the new look of the project as I am using regular floss and 2 ply. I should have really thought about the issue with the first floss when I couldn't thread my needle without a needle threader helping me.
This is my 2014 project that I would like to complete by December 31st, 2014 so it means that I am going to have to work hard to meet this goal. I have figured out how much I need to complete each month and all I can say is I must have been crazy picking this project for this year's goal.
So what did I learn from this cross-stitch.
- If you have to use a needle threader to thread your needle because the thread is thick, rethink the thread for the project.
- If you aren't happy with what a project is looking like, stop and rethink it.
- If you can't put the needle into a spot more than once, your thread isn't going to work.
Of course a few friends have talked about doing a Stitch-a-long starting February 1st so I am thinking if I am going to do that as well. At least that project isn't too big and also there is no deadline. Do I do it or not, that is going to be a decision I need to make very soon.
Time to get back to work and see if I can have some crafting time tonight.
