But this one was just plain dumb.
Was sailing along backstitching. So easy. Just straight lines... except I forgot I had to leave a gap in the top left corner for the holly leaves. Ok, easy mistake... except I made the exact same mistake on the other side, only last night! Then, to compound my stupidity, I decided to trim a messy tail and managed to cut the line of backstitch that I'd just fixed. D'oh! *smacks forehead with palm*
Ahh well, lesson learned... pay attention to my chart and pay close attention to what you're snipping!
I cut out a couple of the little plastic canvas pieces and pinned them in place to get an idea of how it will look...
So tell me... What's the silliest mistake you've made with your stitching? I've made way worse mistakes than this but I like to hear about the silly mistakes, not the "I'm going to cry" horrific stitching mistakes - we can save those for another night :)
Go on - 'fess up! Let's hear the silly stories... Please... *insert best puppy dog pleading eyes*
