New post from Beck

I made several MAJOR counting errors on Summer in Bavaria - to the point that I had to quit. I was so sad, I wanted to stop, just cry and then throw some things...which I did some of that, lol! I want to thank you all, and Cindy in particular, for encouraging me not to stop. Your work was my inspiration - and I didn't want to quit stitching anyway - just had to quit being mean to myself for being such a nut! I've decided to start on Oriental Landscape soon - have the threads but just can't work up yet to putting the material back on the bars. Also have chosen Abundance of Joy for my birthday club choice. I may someday go back to Summer in Bavaria - but not anytime soon, lol!


Hope you all have a wonderful week and thank you for not giving up on me so I wouldn't give up on myself!

Hugs, Beck in SC/Oriental Landscape

When the time is right, you'll get the urge to stitch on Summer again. But OL sounds beautiful and life is short. Stitch what you want to, not what you guilt yourself into! Looking forward to seeing you progress on this one!

Sorry to hear that you quit Summer it is the pits when you have made major mistakes. I am glad that you are going to be starting Oriental though.

How sorry about Summer, but hey, starting something else can be good. Mayve la\ter you will turn back to summer and end up with several beauties!

Sometimes you're just meant to start something else. Summer will be there when you want it. Have fun starting OL. Its' always fun to start something new.
