Hating My Current WIP

I am working on my autumn mandala and I am hating it.  My stitches are not coming out clean and straight.  I am just hating making it.  I am so upset by it.  It will not be done by this autumn, because I do not plan to pick it up again for a long time.  I just hate it!!

I couldnt sleep last night because all I thought about was stitching.  So I stayed up and stitched, and it was a mistake!  You can not stitch while sleepy.  I made so many mistakes.  But I am going to continue on it and I love it anyway.

Two mill hill charts came in the mail for me today.  I am sooo happy!!  Maybe I will start on those and then my house.  Of course as i look at them, I do not have the string.  oy vey.  Maybe not a good day, stitching wise.

Oh I hate when I have days like that when I don't like what I'm working on. Maybe if you set it aside for a day or two than look at maybe you will like it again.

i am going to take your advice, Theresa. I am putting it away for a little bit. I am starting another small project lol.

I started a stamped cross stitch about 10 years ago and I never liked it either. I couldn't make the X's nice and even like with counted cross stitch. I had it in the car with me and was hit by a drunk driver. The car burned up with that stupid cross stitch too! It was a gift for my grandma, so I just printed a WIP photo and framed that instead! Ha! I didn't want to start it all over again. No more stamped cross stitch for me!

Mandalas look very big and complicated. You are brave to try it. Just come back to it next year, after you've finished some other pieces! Happy Stitching!
