Newbie Needs Some Advice!
As a newbie embroiderer, I was so happy how beautifully the corner paisley motifs were sewing out. They are just beautiful and are full of tiny details. It was the longest sew-out I’ve ever done, so we went to out to dinner. When I came back, I thought it was done as the main gold stitching had completed on my new Maxi hoop I got for Christmas. Maybe it was the cocktail I had at dinner, but I didn’t remember the little white detailed stitching until I took my beautiful stitching OFF THE HOOP! What was I thinking?? Needless to say, I have a beautiful, but incomplete, stitch-out. I hooped up the other two corners and just finished them. They are beautiful with the little white flower details! But what to do? I have enough fabric to make new corners and completely redo the stitching (staying away if I’ve had a cocktail – one of my cardinal rules!). Or leave the original two corners in the quilt, opposite corners, paired with the fully complete embroidered corners. I know I will always look at this and see the incomplete corners, but even in their full gold splendor, I know that I made a BIG mistake. Or I can be very Type A and make new ones. What to do? What to do? In any event, it’s a beautiful quilt. I wish I could do this full time!
