When you're about to do a happy dance....but.....

.....don't you hate it when the word 'but' is in the same sentence as 'happy dance'? 

So there I was ...all set to do my happy dance as I had finished my little embroidery project.....


 ...but then I noticed that something wasn't quite right...


....did you spot it? Yup, I used the wrong colour! One side of the design is stitched with  pink and magenta and the other side is pink and lilac! Now on some things it really doesn't matter if you've used the wrong colour....usually no-one would notice but on this it seemed kind of obvious -  although how I missed it while stitching I'll never know!  So my happy dance was delayed while I unpicked the lilac and re-stitched with the magenta....


...and it does look so much better being stitched in the right colours....don't you agree? And since I'm thinking of finishing this one off by using a bright magenta hoop, I'm glad that there's a bit more magenta in the design.

Here's the details of the kit...

Bucilla Plaid stamped embroidery called Bohemian Paisley
Stamped on dark blue denim fabric.
Finished size 6 inches
Threads, fabric, and instructions included.

As much as I enjoyed trying something a bit different (and I'll definitely be doing some more embroidery as it was fun) I'm really itching to get back to doing some good old  cross stitch!

Until next time (and don't forget to check in on Friday to see what fun finds there are this week!)....happy stitching!

I'm with everyone else. I had to look again to find the "mistake". Beautiful work. Glad it was a quick fix at least. I felt the same way about the embroidery I did. Was glad to get back to those familiar X's.
