Second installment of Galaxy stitching

Hi everyone,

Have been stitching happily on my Galaxy project. Below is the progress so far. It now has more of the lighter purples included and some of the pretty dark purple metallic.

It is growing quite quickly as some of the stars are large and fill the squares. Really enjoying the patterns. Some look deceptively simple but require a little bit of concentration. Tried stitching one part while watching a television show and made a bad boo boo. I must have a masters certificate in unpicking by now. If I had a cent for every stitch I have removed over the years I would be a millionaire. Sound familiar? Kathy has very detailed and generous instructions but still I make mistakes because I just don't read the instructions enough times.

The old saying "count twice stitch once" also applies to reading instructions. Read twice and stitch once. Maybe it would be better to change it to, "read till it sinks in and then stitch once".

Anyway thanks to Kathy I am out the woods and into stitching sunshine again.

Here is the latest photo.

  1. OMG!!! Carol, I SO relate to this post! I was working on Kathy's Strawberry Shortcake last night and had to unpick an ENTIRE SIDE of the first block because I was off by one!! GRRRRRRR. I agree with everything you said in your post, count a million times, stitch once!! LOL. Would you mind posting your conversion for Galaxy? I am going to stitch this one someday and would love to use your colorway. I love purple!!!!!
