I bet I’m not the only one

Do you set aside problem projects? I’m still working a bit on this first little embroidered quilt but I don’t know if it can be saved. I wasn’t liking the couched thread along the border but I’ve been doing a bit of stitching on the inside and think it might be worth taking the couched stitches out and trying something different.


Tonight I’m working on the landscape embroidery and the string blocks… The orange is done and I’m heading back up to do the turquoise. I decided to cut my squares and set them in place so that I could just grab them and piece a star when I had a few minutes.

    I like the little house quilt too. I know I am always so super critical of things I make – and yet others don’t see the flaws at all. Maybe hold a giveaway on the blog if you don’t want to keep the little quilt when it’s done. Keep plodding along and I am sure it will turn out nicely.

    I love your string stars! So do you use 1 square per set of 4 blocks? Do you have a template? I love the solids, they are so bright. Your little stitchery pieces are so wonderful. Thanks for sharing your progress. K-

    I think the little house is very cute. By taking out the couching maybe it will make the inside stitching the focus. I really like the technique you are using on the design wall to help you remember where you plan to put each color. These are really sharp blocks.

    Sometimes I just get rid of the problem by tossing it in the trash rather than agonize over it. I did that with a project I started at Road to California. It felt soooooo good to give myself permission to get over it and not have any guilt for doing so.

    I have several knitting projects scattered around the house in various stages of completion. I know several will never be finished, but I hate the thought of frogging them.

    Sometimes, projects are just stepping stones (learning tools): at least that is how I see some of my stalled items.
