Just a Short Break from Quaker Diamonds

Well, I finished Quaker Diamonds...sort of. I spent several evenings "proofing", that is, looking for all the little individual stitches that I'd missed the first time around. Finally, I pronounced it done, did the "happy dance" (which you do NOT want to witness for fear of wetting your pants from laughing so hard). Then I realized that I had stitched about two thirds of the alphabet in ...wait for it... the wrong color! Shoot me now. I knew it was one of the dark colors and I just picked up the wrong one. Sooooo, I'm frog stitching and re-doing them in the correct blue-black. C'est la vie.

In the meantime, I needed to stitch a little something for my sister, B., for her birthday next week. So I picked up one of the many heart designs from Sweetheart Tree which I have had in my stash for at least 18 years! They make great little gifts. It probably took me almost as long to assemble as it did to stitch. But it's cute and she loves blueberries.

  1. Cute finish! Hopefully it won't take too long to restitch your boo boo! Sounds like something I would do.

  3. Oh no! The alphabet problem is awful but it can be fixed. I am just so happy to put away done projects, I may never of found the problem because I would not have looked that closely:) I love the blueberry ornament.
