I learned an important lesson this weekend. For the past two months, I have been like a stubborn child. I just didn't want to acknowledge the fact that I am only a beginner. I wanted to believe that if I really put my mind to it, I could just leap from newbie to advanced stitcher. But it just doesn't work that way. At last I have had to admit defeat and slow down. What happened I can hear you ask - well, I tried to get started on my big "eavenweave" project (Cove Haven Inn) on Friday night. I tried three times and three times I had to frog it all. I am just not up to the "over two" stitching at the moment. My eye is just not tuned in to it yet. I need a little more stitching on the much easier Aida. I have to be patient and do some more practising.
So that is when I started the "Princess Palace" later that night. It is done on Aida (some of the RAK that Meg sent to me - thank you again Meg!). It is a much larger count that the other Aida's I have worked on, so the stitches are so nice and small - it makes it look so neat. I just love it.
Today was not as easy as yesterday though - my mind kept on wandering I lost my place a few times and had to re-count. Even had to frog a few times too. Here is where I am now (a much clearer picture than yesterday). The aida is actually a beautiful khaki color - I need to learn how to work with this camera!
Maureen gave me the "Lovely Blog Award" this past week - thank you Maureen. It is very sweet of you :) Passing it on to only seven people is a little tricky - I just love soooo many blogs. I am not even gonna try to make that decision. How about I just nominate everyone on my bloglist!
