A while ago I found a Dimensions Gold cross stitch kit that I absolutely fell in love with (and thanks to eBay I also found it at a bargain price!) I decided to invest in the kit and work on it as my summer project not that I have finished University until October.
This is what the finished kit will look like:
However, last night I couldn’t work out why my stitches weren’t lining up. After hunting for about an hour I found the problem. I am working from the centre, and I have completed the end column of the window above the table. Next, I went to do the doorway on the left of it, but somehow, I have stitched the doorway one row too high up so it doesn’t line up to the window correctly! After lots of consideration it seems the only way I can fix it is by undoing it 😦
It did occur to me that I may be able to get away with only taking the blue out (that was all I had done in the doorway) and adding an extra row of orange at the bottom of the door frame and removing one from the top! That would mean I only lose one evenings worth of work! So fingers crossed it all goes to plan and the procedure isn’t as painful as I first expected!
In better news…the crochet learning is all going well! I am still completing a square a day for my throw and I am in the process of making a pair of pink fluffy bunny slippers! I am also going to make a trip to Hobbycraft later today to *hopefully* buy the wool for my hat as long it is still sat in the clearance basket waiting for me!
