Well THAT Was Easy and a GIVEAWAY!


Yep...I did it. I hacked off that wretched 80s color stitching. The lovely linen has been salvaged for another project. The DMC has been put back in the stash. No regrets! And I'm moving on and damn if it doesn't feel good!

And I have a chart to giveaway!


If you're interested in adding this to your stitching stash, just leave a comment on this post. I'll draw a winner on Saturday! Don't let my disdain with my stitched piece sway you. I'm sure this will be lovely stitched up in whatever colors you choose! It just wasn't 'mucky' enough for me I suppose!

*Peace!

I like the A&E chart, but I'm with you...the colors are 80's. Throw my name in too. Who knows, maybe it will inspire me.
Sometimes getting rid of those "burdens" can be so therapeutic! Good for you.

Good for you for tossing what didn't work for you.

I have had to do the same thing before....Didn't it take a burden off???? Now, about the chart....I would LOVE the chart to add to my A&E collection..Plus I would actually stitch it after coming up with a color pallette that works! Thanks so much for the chance...

Always, Faye carolinastitcher

I am sorry that this chart just wasn't right for you, but at least you were able to salvage that beautiful linen. I don't actually mind the colour scheme, so please throw my name int the draw.

I love the colors even if they are outdated. I understand, though, about stopping and going to something else. Life is too short to work on something we don't enjoy.

Congrats at cutting it out instead of suffering through! I would love to win your chart to change the colors to overdyes and stitch for my growing A&E collection!!

I would love a chance to win this chart!

I did have one piece that I was doing over 1 and didn't like it at all, so frogged it and was able to save the linen. Yay! :-)

Deb said...

The colors are definitely the 80's! I've got the chart and was going to change everything out. But like everything else, I haven't had the time (I'm still obsession about the Milk Run Shawl).

Congratulations for the courage! Moving on. I already have this pattern, but thanks for the heads up... I'll be sure to do a floss toss before starting.
