As most of you know, I am making dish towels for a friend of mine using Embroidery Library's Kitchen Herb Cameos, found here. I complained about how dense the lavender design was, having had trouble with the flowers.
Today I did what I thought was going to be one of the easiest of all--parsley. After all, it's just some leaves and tiny flowers, right? How wrong was I?! The needle broke; okay, happens occasionally. But then I had more thread breakage on this one design than all the others . Then a huge bird's nest! Why it was decided that the leaves had to be gone over about six or seven times is beyond me! It absolutely tore up my stabilizer.
But I soldiered on! The last straw, however, was when the tiny flowers were stitched--OFF PLACE!! Then I noticed two of the leaves are also off place! Good grief! I certainly can't give this to my friend!
I don't know whether to try again, or just choose a different design. I'm wondering, though, if the others will be any better, especially if they have flowers .
Thank you for allowing me to vent my frustration .
