I am NOT impressed right now. I resurrected the Vintage Colt (which I started well over a year ago). I haven’t worked on it since probably last July. I kept making small mistakes and having to pull stitches and redo. I kept walking away from it for weeks at a time. This most recent time it was obviously months.
So when I finally finished the birth announcement, I figured ‘why not give it another go?’ and so I picked it up again. I had left off at the start of a new page and this time, it was incredibly easy and everything went amazingly smooth – until I finished all the black stitching on said page. I noticed that the new page’s stitching didn’t line up with what had previous been done!
Initially, I thought it might be a mistake in the pattern. I checked. Nope. The pages line up perfectly. So I started looking for the mistake thinking it was something I had done recently. Nope. Everything I have stitched in the past week is perfectly A-OK. I moved on to what I had stitched previously. And I found it. I stitched THREE EXTRA ROWS of black in the previous page of the pattern. And I ask myself “how did that even happen?!” I am so incredibly angry at myself for this. This just proves that when I started this it was way more than I could handle. The worst part of the whole thing is that I can’t just pull stitches and fix it. I would have to pull the stitches for over two thirds of what I have stitched already. This project has become a complete write-off. I am really upset.
Maybe one day I will consider starting it over again but right now, I just want to toss it in the trash. Frustration and anger seem to be the order of the day today.
