Isn’t it cool how anything you set our mind to will, inevitably, provide a reminder of important life lessons if you pay attention? My recent Embroidery Life Lesson moment came when I got tired of goofing up my stem stitches and decided to…gasp…tear them out and try again!
I am one of those people: reluctant to ask directions, refusing to make u-turns, and generally biased toward whatever’s next on the list. But sometimes, you should just rip out your stitches and try again. It’s ok. Trying again is not the same as admitting defeat. And, the yarn won’t instantly fray. And, the final result will look much, much better!
Now: On to Backstitch!
