Slow Sunday Stitching & Unstitching.

I'm working on my Linen And Threads - Mystery Sampler SAL.  This is a group that I found on Facebook.  The pattern is FREE!!!  I'm back to working on the January clue.  I wasn't quite happy with my colors and stitches for the peacock.  I spent some time ripping them out.  Luckily I didn't have that many done.

All the stitching to the right of the peacock is gone now and I'm going to work feather by feather.

It was easy to remove stitches while watching bowling.  It did, however, take longer than I expected.  I was being careful not to cut the cloth.  It was still relaxing and I enjoyed the process.  It will be worth it in the end.  We pre-bowled two weeks in one day.  Bowling season is now done.  Let the baseball begin. :)  Bring on spring.

I'm linking up with Kathy's Quilts for Slow Sunday Stitching.

Slow Sunday Stitching


  1. So fun to stitch while watching bowling! From indoors to outdoors with your sttiching.

  2. Unstitching is not as much fun as stitching, but is sometimes necessary to increase your enjoyment of the outcome... look forward to seeing the re-do!

  3. I'm impressed with your counted cross stitch which I don't do. It's so nice to have a portable take along project. Happy stitching!

  4. Unstitching is not fun, but when one is not satisfied it is still okay.
    Happy stitching! :-)

  5. I had to do a bunch of un-stitching today also, but mine was due to an un-noticed knot on the reverse side that include a big circle of floss. You will be happy with the your new colors so it will all be worth it. Enjoy baseball season.
