Escape From the Frogs

Today’s SBQ was suggested by Sharon and is:

When you find yourself making a lot of mistakes in various stitching projects do you find it better to muddle your way through or do you take a brief break from stitching? If you do take a break, how long do you take?

Oh my goodness, yes I take a break! There’s no point in continuing on when you’re obviously either tired, having trouble counting/concentrating or whatever the problem is. I try not to wait too long before going back to it, though, or I’ll run the risk of it becoming a UFO. In fact, when I discovered that one of my UFOs had been started in the wrong place on specialty, printed fabric, I frogged all of the stitching and the next day, I started stitching in the right spot. I think it’s important not to allow yourself to be defeated and lose momentum, so the sooner you can pick it up and have some success with it, the better off you are!

    I set it aside, too. The point of the hobby is to relax and enjoy, right? 😉
