I worked on Everyone's Nook this week at lunch when I could. We had sales meetings all this week at work so most days I was to busy to get to stitch at lunch. I did find out what my mistake was in the flower. I added a row on the top left side. I'm going to leave it for now and maybe later go back and fix it..I'll see how I feel and if I keep seeing the mistake the more work I do on it.

I did start Scotland last night but, I really don't have much to show you. I started the piece doing it 2plys of floss over one and I just thought it looked kind of messy so I frogged that all out then did it 1 over 1 and it looks a lot better but, the light pink color I'm doing is really hard to see with only one strand. I had started the piece on fabric that I gridded but, as I was working on it I took the grid lines/floss out of the fabric because the black I used to grid was getting into the lighter color floss. I think If I just take it one section at a time I'll be ok with not having the fabric gridded.

I'm started my first PIF gift today. I've had the idea of what to stitch for this person for a while. Now I just need to figure out how I'll finish it.

I hope everyone has a great weekend and thanks for stopping by.

The flower looks great, and even knowing you made a mistake, you can't tell.

Hey Jenn...I'm interested in what Scotland looks like...the design all done up...is there a picture link somewhere to it completed? I looked in HAED and couldn't find it. But I love all things Scottish and was just wondering what it looked like?

I wouldn't have noticed a mistake in the flower, think of it as a personalisation ;) it's lovely and cheery. Your recent framing looks fab too!

Nice start, the flower is so bright and cheery. As to a mistake in it, I can't see where it looks off anywhere.

Okay, I have looked at both pictures Jenn and I cannot find the mistake you are talking about. If you didn't tell me there was a mistake, I wouldn't even know it. I say it looks fine :o)
