"Pick yourself up.... start all over again!"

There I was yesterday, picking up my needle and determined to stitch at least 30 stitches per project.... and like Jo from Little Women - or was it Amy - discovering what I thought was, was not!  Remember when one of the sisters decided to prepare a meal for Laurie Laurence.. and what happened to dessert?  Laurie manfully ate the concoction.. but the girls were wondering at his facial expressions before they tasted the dessert themselves.. turns out they put salt instead of sugar, and the cream was sour!

Well, that's kind of like how I felt after stitching a whole motif and discovering that the blue I picked up to continue the flowers of my little Burda wreath was the wrong shade of blue!! That's what you get when you stitch in the wrong light!  Anyway, never daunted, I chased the frog away and have continued. Nothing else to do but pick yourself up!  Dust yourself off!  Start all over again...  :)

Anyway, here is a photo of my dearest nephew and niece.. missing them very much!

Have a lovely day! May you all be blessed!
