rounding the top

I had to pull out a bit on the left side this morning. I was putting in some of the tree and saw that I had made a mistake. Thank goodness I spotted it when I did because if I had not, the top would have not met in the correct place. And there wasn't much to pull so it wasn't a tragedy. I will have to stitch the tree when I do the beading at home. I found today on the train that the movement along with some of the odd spacing will make it too hard to do so I'll have to do it at home. I'm getting bored with this piece and I most likely will start something new for the train next Monday - but I'll stick with it until then. Hopefully I'll get all of the cross stitching done by then and only have the trees and beading to complete.

Oh but it's so pretty!!! I hate having to rip out stitching though. I hope you do get the cross stitch part done by the end of the week like you're hoping!

You are powering through this! I guess I'd better get my ass to the post office!

You are making great progress. I'm glad you were able to correct the error before you had the whole side stitched.

Stick with it and you'll be finished soon.

Glad you caught your error before it became a major problem! I don't know how you stitch on the train. I'd have errors just from the movement and my needle going where it shouldn't! Keep plugging away at her, you are almost done now!

I'm glad you didn't have to pull much. I am amazed that you can stitch on a train. I can't seem to do it. At least, I do it so slowly as to make it not worth doing. It is looking really good!
