Waxing Moon Designs Stitching Mends the Soul WIP

Ever had a design that with every stitch, or so it seemed, something went wrong? 

Nothing bad about the design or designer.  I like Waxing Moon Designs.  Just with stitching this piece I've wanted to throw it a couple of times due to being so frustrated with it. Not one of my better moments or stitching experiences.

First a suggested thread color not working out and having to find another after stitching a large area of one of the design elements.

Stitching and finding out the count was off, having to take out stitches in more than one place.  More than once.  Stitching sections two, three and yes, even four times.

Thread tangling and knotting.

Folks, this piece, when done will be a relief!

Just have to finish the apron and the lace at the bottom.   Would like to have this finished by the end of the weekend.

Having shared all that...Stitching Does Mend the Soul.  I do like to stitch or machine sew.  I do like working with needle and thread.

Tried to take good pictures.  It's overcast here today.  Such a dreary day.  Changes in the weather really mess with my fibromyalgia.  Today will be a low key, do little day.  Not even sure I will stitch and if I do, it won't be for very long.

Needle minder from MixingItUpwithDBL, an etsy artisan.  I use needle minders when I stitch but now when I put up my stitching for any length of time, I park my needles in the fabric.  Don't want any more lost needles.
