Stitch A Little, Rip A Little

I made good progress on Meri's Queen Bee Friday night. I put a few more stitches in this morning. Then I got a good look at the blades of the first scissor I stitched and the stitches looked hideous. It looked like a really bad ear of corn. Not sure what happened there, but the stitches HAD to come out. So after lots of snipping....this is my progress.


It sure did seem strange to be snipping a pair of scissor with a pair of scissors. Ah well, stitching can be a strange business sometimes. Not much left to stitch on this project. Sure would help if I could make things look pretty the first time!

If I get off this computer, I might just finish this project tonight.

Thank you for your comments on my blog and for Meri's link. The scissors are pretty. Loved the exchange idea from your local group. Have fun.

Yikes! Ripping is no fun. Especially when you have a pair of perfectly good scissors to do it with. Hope you got to finish it, 'cause this project looks great!

Queen Bee is looking good. These are great patterns.

I know all about ripping -- I had pulled out my afghan [for tomorrow's MIOM] and had to take out a lot. Just couldnt' leave in the way it was

Your queen bee scissors are looking great - sorry to hear about the ripping, though :( Won't be long now before they're all finished :D

Queen Bee is looking good. Great progress on it.

Your piece is looking great. Thanks for vising my blog and the kind comments that you left. Can't wait to see the finished piece.

I was glad I used plain DMC on mine because I needed to do the scissors in the two-step method to keep them straight (first crossing one way, then coming back the other way). They are looking great!

Patti said...

Poor you! The perils of being a perfectionist? LOL But your progress looks great and I can't wait to see it completed.

I know only too well how that feels - frogging. The hardanger piece I'm doing at the mo was frogged to within an inch of it's life when I first started on it last year! Doing better this 2nd time around though....
