Finish or Fling? - Winter Sampler


This is the start of a band sampler from a book by Jo Verso. It's one of a set of four, and I think at one point I had designs on stitching the set.

However, this got laid aside because I think I made a counting error in at least one of the specialty stitch bands - and frogging those can be nearly impossible!

Pros:
  • Worked on evenweave
  • Like the design

Cons:
  • Barely started
  • Counting errors
  • Difficult to frog

So - Finish or Fling?


Verdict: Fling. I haven't left much of a margin for framing. I'm going to cut this up and perhaps make a little ornament out of what I've done so far and reuse the rest of the fabric for something else.

I'm with you on this one it's a fling, only because there isn't mcuh stitched yet. But at least you can salvage some of the fabric.

Great idea on the ornament. It does look nice.

I would fling also because of the counting error...anyway to save the fabric.
