Unpicking June 6, 2007

Filed under: Life in general — mel @ 9:50 pm

Being rather invalid today due to a bad tummy, I attempted to do some needlework because I didn’t want to look at the computer and I had no more books/DVDs left to consume.  Embroidery Expert Jean (who incidentally has just launched a fancy cross-stitch website called Needle Little Love, it’s cute!) posted me a little set of somethin-somethin  a few days ago (thanks Jean!). With great enthusiasm, I embarked on this little project. Ten minutes later, I was cursing the holey piece of cloth, remembering why I didn’t like doing those felt/denim letter holders and  tacky bermudas for home economics classes *shudder*
1) I am terrible with details. (There is a difference between light green and pale green after all)

2) I am terribly  impatient.

3) I HATE unpicking. Especially if I don’t have a proper unpicker. (Um, is that what they are called?)

I resisted my Grave Green Error for a while…but in the end, I could not live with monotone leaves. So…snip poke snarl.

Undoing. Should appreciate the chance to try again rather than crankily stabbing my bed with the needle.
