You all are too kind!

It's so nice to have someone justify your craziness! Only another stitcher would understand. If I told my husband that I just couldn't complete a project because I started on the horizontal he would look at me like I'd grown two heads. Not to mention all the money spent on a huge project that when I started to stitch it, it gave me heart palpitations. Only another stitcher would understand.

Anyway, I did get "My Earth" out last night and it felt so right - no palpitations! :) I finished up one band under the sheep and started on a floral band under that. I realized though that I was using the wrong color thread for the vines. It's supposed to be Deep Green and I was using the same thread as the leaves. I don't think I'm going to rip it out. It gives it a little more subtle look - what do you all think? The deep green is stitched in the flowers above the grass by the pudgie.

My Earth wip as of 6/8/07


I may work on it a little more tonight and then start on my June Flip-it Bit.

Bradley ended up having a very nice birthday - he's in there playing with this huge nerf dart gun thing my mom got him and loving every minute of it! :) Thank you all again for being so supportive and understanding! I appreciate you all!

  9. I think the color looks fine - I wouldn't bother taking it out.

    It's lovely; every time I see a SB in your blog, I'm tempted to pull out another one of mine that I have in my stash.

    My DS turned 7 last month, and one of his gifts was a nerf football/missile - it's really cool and I'm happy for him to play with something that's not going to hurt him!

  13. Your piece looks wonderful. I totally understand the heart palpitations, only mine come when I am actually PAYING the huge amounts for the materials. [It doesn't stop me though! haha]

  16. My Earth looks beautiful, and I think it's better to stop stitching on a project that isn't making you happy.

  19. Dear Nicole, thank you so much for your uplifting comment of last week. Now I hope I can do the same for you and tell you that there is nothing more understandable than breaking into a hyperventilating fit when faced with a project as huge as ATS. I think you're a brave woman for even buying it in the first place!

  20. My Earth looks so beautiful Nicole!! I wouldn't rip out anything as it looks stunning! I get kind of burned out sometimes on projects and I am sure we all do. I need to get back to my stitching as my DH has been home and I have been trying to catch up today as he went back to work. Perhaps tomorrow will be a better time.

  21. Nicole, I think your MY EARTH looks better with the lighter green thread than what had been designed. The darker green would have stood out too much. I think I'm going to do the same with mine, so thank you for the idea. I also started a project on the wrong thread, but finished it anyway--it was a very small piece but drove me nuts the entire time. And thanks for the comforting comments you've left on my blog--yes, I will miss dh when he heads off down the road. But I'll definitely enjoy that first day. LOL Hugs
