U is for ... #atozchallenge

A to Z Challeneg 2016

U is For ... Unpicking

Which is something that I seem to do alot!!



I am only really a beginner to the sewing machine, with only a day crash course instruction, so I will not be hard on myself lol!!  

I am pleased that I am mainly self taught with the little projects I have done so I really do not mind having to Unpick my stitches because i know that next time I won't make that mistake again!!

I hope I wont anyway lol

Sorry, but this post is a short and sweet one today :)

See you tomorrow for 'V' ... thinking cap for this one lol

Hugs
Heather

  4. I just found out that picking cross stitches out is called 'frogging'.

    1. Yes Frogging!! Or when someone says the Frog visited ... they have been unpicking their stitches! Took me a long time to figure out what the saying meant lol

  5. I'm not a beginner and I still pick out stitches too. But it did get better with time, I don't need to pick them out as often as I used too.

  6. I think we've all done our fair share of unpicking. But we know sometimes it's a necessary evil and that the second (or third, or fourth) attempt will be a success! :)
