Thank you Missy and Melissa for reassuring me that its not the end of the world if I use a different colour, refuse to unpick and just adapt a design and continue with my messy stitching.

I did feel quite guilty though and feel it is my 'duty' to at least try some rail roading (just to see how tedious it is - or therapeutic?) and maybe try traditional cross stitches only. I will continue with random designs though ;)

I haven't picked up my IHSW piece since Sunday afternoon and I feel that I need to get on and get it finished (otherwise it will end up a UFO and I don't want that!). UFOs only come about when we lose our stitching mojo half way through a project. It is usually a new project that gets us back into it again. I am vaguely aware of a naughty sprite in my head telling...no begging me to start something new! Seriously! Where exactly has common sense ran off to? the little blighter! I wont succumb though until I have finished the skeleton. I really wont (ahem).

So, I didn't watch everything on my sky + whilst stitching and have some shows waiting for me now. But I am really not enticed at the moment and should probably see that as a sign to sew. My problem is that I have just started a new job and am really tired (ridiculous as it is only day two). I am not sure that I like the job but I cant pin point exactly why not - something probably to do with having absolutely no idea what I am doing! I am not even joking. I am sure it will all work out in the end.

So, I am going to get stitching and see how much I can do before bed, which is in about half an hour the way i feel! lol


  1. Hi Kate,
    I just posted the hugest comment ever on your previous post, since I was trying to cover all your questions and doubts (sorry for that eheh)
    If you still think you have any doubts or if you want more help and information about anything let me know :)

    And if you're in the mood to start another project, I'll be the little devil saying yes, go for it, eheh, and then when you like going back to the tattoo you'll go back to it, one thing I found out that helps me with my mojo is setting monthly goals for myself, but that'sjust my weird me :)

  2. Thank you, thank you and thank you! It is so very kind of you to take the time to explain all that to me - and I think I may need to join a SAL now :)

    Thank you again.


  3. If you're interested in joining a SAL, Kate, check out this forum: http://love4stitching.yuku.com/

    All kinds and I'm sure you'll find something or a LOT of things just for you. HAHAHAHHAA.

  4. Hey Joysze,

    Thanks, I will definitely give it a look - I don't think I have enough projects on the go at once ;)


I really appreciate you taking the time to comment. Spill the beans...
