Silly, silly me

So I truly am an idiot sometimes. Earlier this year I was working on a freebie Passione design, you might remember fairy celebration 3. I was using a hand dyed thread by Polstitch. I made a huge mistake and had to frog a chunk of it, as I was working further on it I realized I might run out of thread because of that frog. So I ordered two more skeins knowing I would probably have to ripe out the old and restart it.....I was sort of ok with that as long as the two new skeins matched and I was learning my lesson on dyed threads. Fast forward to last week I was inputting the new supplies I purchased and received into my cross stitch program and when I got to the threads, my program said there were 2 in my stash already, I just assumed that I had updated the program already with the new supplies so I just carried on with adding the rest of the stuff, then when I was putting the supplies away what do you think I found? Yep that's right I had purchased a second skein for this project and could have finished it months ago if I had only looked in my stash and/or pulled out all the supplies at the begining so now I have two extra skeins......Well before continuing with this project I am going to double check that the skein wasn't picked for something else because knowing my luck I picked it for another monochromatic design.

In other news I have made great headwave with Found and the only reason why I put it down was because I had to and moved on to Prosperity, which is what I was working on this weekend since it was too hot for anything else it, I made great progress and it looks fabulous. I am thinking of changing the schedule of working on each picture to a month instead of two weeks since I really didn't want to put Found down last time and possibly I can finish Prosperity sooner which will give me more time for Found.......something still to think about.

Thanks for listening, I will try and post WIP pictures tomorrow.

Can't wait to see pics of both Found and Prosperity! I love looking at other people's pics, lol. Glad you got a lot done, and sorry you did the idiot thing. Don't feel bad though. I've done the idiot thing more than once, and you just have to move on!
