How many of you remember Bob Ross? The guy with the wild hair who painted landscapes on PBS many years ago? I think some re runs are still being broadcast because one of my nieces stated that her young children LOVE to watch Bob Ross on tv and it gives her 30 minutes of free time. To get back to the subject....he had a quote that I liked, There are no mistakes in painting, just happy accidents. He felt that errors just gave you the opportunity to be creative.
Well I had an opportunity to be creative this week. I am a seasoned cross stitcher but every now and then I mess up big time. Wednesday was one of those days. I have been working on a sampler for about two months and I was nearing the end of my stitching when I realized I was off ONE COUNT. One count in a sampler no less aud the mistake would be obvious if I did not do something. Here is how the sampler is supposed to look according to the pattern.
Now I am working on this project...
And I am also working on a baby bib for another great niece who is to arrive in August. Her name will be ELLA and she is the first grandchild for my brother in law, William and his wife, Barbara. To say they are excited is an understatement.
