Starting over means re-doing some of my projects. A lot of the projects that I've done I don't want to do over. Some turned out not to be the worth effort and others were not fun at all. There's also a feeling of "been there, done that". I've also discovered that I enjoy the act of creating more than the results sometimes.
My first do over was this penstemon I designed a while ago. It's small and simple and only 2 colors. I'll eventually be restitching many of my own designs. Luckily, I still have the charts even if I no longer have the item or pictures of the item.
My second do over is actually actually stitching something for the third time!
After the second stitching, I'd had enough. But, I was given the 2010 Just Cross Stitch Ornament issue with the pattern and that was a sign that the reindeer needed to be stitched again. Hopefully, that's it.
My last do over represents all the EGA seminars that I attended over the years.
This needlecase was designed by Linda Chirby of Chirby Designs from a seminar in 2000.
I know that for sure because of this:
I actually got a kit left over from the seminar. I loved the origami needle holder then and now. The needle holder in my original kit was magenta and I still used it for my beading needles. I'm glad to have another one.
I did do searches on other EGA classes that I've taken. This one was the only one where I could get the kit again and I'm glad. It was the one I most wanted to do over.
I'm sure there will be a lot more do overs in my future.
