Erase and Rewind

Hey, what did you hear me say
you know the difference it makes
what did you hear me say
Yes, I said it's fine before
But I don't think so no more
I said it's fine before

I've changed my mind
I take it back
Erase and rewind
'cause I've been changing my mind




Sometimes, you just have to know when to walk away. In this case, it's been the letter Q, now O. Try as I might, I could not get it to work out correctly, so I've decided to just let it go and just stitch up the letter O fairy instead. I was ripping out more than I was stitching, so it just was not worth it to me. I must say, I've made the correct decision, as I have had only one hiccup thus far! Funny how that works out. 

It's also been a blessing that 90% of the colors used in Letter Q, Now O are used in the Letter O. Yay! I've only had to purchase two colors I did not have in my stash. As an extra added bonus, I used a gorgeous Picture This Plus Cashel linen that I already had in my stash. This one is stitching up WAY quicker than Letter Q, Now O and I am really hoping I can get this finished in time. 


Welp, here is the restart. I will eventually stitch up Letter Q, Now O for myself at some point. I have two other Nora Corbett Letters From Nora all picked out. One needs to be done before the other one, but you know how that goes! HAHA!  


As always, stitchy notes first:


Design: Letters from Nora Letter O


Designer: Nora Corbett 


Fabric Used: 32 count Cashel linen in Crystal Fog




Fibers Used: Crescent Colours  cotton floss in Argyle Socks, Bejeweled, Cloud, Cobbled Peach, Desert Mesquite, Heatherleigh, Hickory Sticks, Hydrangea, La Tierra, Old Blue Jeans, Vintage Violet, Wisconsin Woods. Kreinik (#4) Braid in Blue Merengue #3514.  Mill Hill glass seed beads in #00252 Iris, size 11/0 2.5 MM and #02001 seed beads in Pearl size 11/0. 



What it will eventually look like: 




Progress as of Sunday 04.20.2014: 






Well, I better get back to it. It's not going to stitch itself, haha! Hope everyone is having a great Easter weekend! 




Respectfully submitted,
