Congratulations! I think I would fill in those random stitches, but I'm pretty OCD about my stitching! I love honeybees! I'm excited to see how you frame it

I'm sorry you had a rough day today. I completely understand. I'm just in the process of being diagnosed with a chronic illness. It's probably rheumatoid arthritis, but I'm not sure yet. It's really hard being mostly homebound. It can be really depressing to be in the house so often. I have a wonderful husband and 4 kids, but I miss out on so much because I am exhausted or in pain. It's a tough cross to bear. It's ok to feel sad. No need to put on a mask for us! You are in my prayers!

It's funny! I placed my first Down Sunshine Lane order yesterday. They do have great customer service!

I love the face paint! I am exactly like you. I get grumpy when I don't get to stitch. I'm not sure if it's an addiction or if it is just my way of calming myself down and processing my emotions by stabbing fabric instead of stabbing relatives. ;)

I really suggest buying Fiberlicious in groups. She'll sell a valentine's day set of floss and an autumn set, etc. That way, they are coordinating so you can use them all in one project. I also do Jodyri designs floss of they month club. She ships every other month so I can save shipping costs. Plus, you can add whatever you want to your order for free shipping. Although I'm a stash hoarder so you might not want to listen to me. :)

I absolutely love all your wips. We have very similar taste! And your Pyrex collection: wow!

When I have a major issue like this, I have found that the best thing to do us to put it away and work on something else. In a few days, after I have calmed down, it is much easier to find the error. Honestly, I used to unpick right away and sometimes realized my mistake was minor or not even there afterward. Just put it away and work on your band sampler for a few days and then take it out again and go row by row to find your mistake. You can either fudge the pattern or unpick. When unpicking, you can always cut a thread and then weave in whatever is left of the thread so you don't have to unpick the entire thread.

I was also looking for the GHI chart and finally found out at Down Sunshine Lane. It is an LNS in the US. It wasn't on their website, but she got it for me and is shipping it this week. I would email her.

I am intimidated by the Teresa Wentzler charts as well. I have the seasonal carousel horses and I'd love to do them, but they terrify me. Maybe I'll get the courage to start one when you start yours. :)
