Crazy Days 9-12

I’m a bit late posting the last few days crazy challenge, due to several factors, 1 being I was working on Ruairi’s birthday piece which isn’t done but hopefully by the end of the weekend it will and 2 making the most silliest of mistakes one evening that meant the two starts I was doing that evening needed frogging !

For day 9 I started the Cut Thru Pirate Ship by Bothy Threads, this is Ruairi’s birthday present for next year…does anyone else see the irony of me trying to finish this years one this week while still starting next years! Well I started it and was really pleased with my mistake and moved onto day 10’s start another Cut Thru this time Noah’s Ark, this is Benjamins birthday piece. While starting this I realised I had my fabric portrait and needed it landscape, well I suddenly wondered what way the pirate ship was supposed to be as they were similar in size and realised then my mistake, I’d stitched the pirate ship wrong way round. I left it in the envelope with the intention of correcting said mistake the next day and off I went on the Noah’s Ark, at this stage it was getting late and I only did a bit before calling it a day and as I was taking the piece off the frame realised I’d started at the fold in the material from where it was folded in the pack and not the fold above that I’d put in to mark the middle, so I now had two pieces that needed frogging and just from the one evening…

Well yesterday I had a sulk with it and didn’t touch them as I wasn’t in the frame of mind lol, but today I went back to them and corrected both and made a restart so here they are..such little starts but such trouble !

Day 10 Cut Thru Noah’s Ark

I also got starts in for days 11 and 12 and these went smoothly lol. For day 11 I chose to work some on the hunting picture for my husbands birthday.

Day 12’s piece I decided to work on James’ birthday piece, this is the Hogwarts Crest. This is one piece I’m really looking forward to getting back to.

Day 12 Hogwarts Crest.

Just three days left for the starts and then I can get stuck in with stitching more on a piece than a few stitches, this is what I’m looking forward to. I have to say though I have two other pieces that nearly made it into my crazy list but I couldn’t take anything out as most are birthday gifts so I’ve decided to add them in anyway. I will give more details on these two extra pieces at the start of next week !

Happy stitching,

    Sorry you had to restart 2. I had to frog one of mine when I had the wroung orientation but I was too upset to restart.

    Oh I'm so sorry you had to frog and restart both of them! Thank goodness you didn't have a lot of stitching done already. I will have to be extra extra careful that this doesn't happen to me, as I have been reading about this happening a lot!
