I know I said that I would be decreasing the number of stitchy posts, but I thought this one would illustrate perfectly something that is fundamental to stitching.
After where I got to last time, I decided to start stitching the window, as there were plenty of whole stitches.
Starting the foliage
More foliage. Looks good doesn't it. There are 59 rows between the first line I stitched (the multicoloured bit) and the top of the window...
Started the dress...get to a row and realise I've not counted 59 rows. I've counted 60. Fuck.
Decided to unstitch the bottom part rather than the window. Cue snagged threads, a lot of cutting, and wasted time and skeins.
Here is where I am now. Obviously I have been very careful with the counting now!
Here endeth the lesson...
