Rrrrripulation frustration!

I've had this project for some time: O Come All Ye Faithful by
Patricia Andrele and was so excited to start it this past week.
Got the outside border completed and it matched up beautifully
--always a bonus!   Then began inside border on the left side
--got to the bottom and found I was off by one row!  Tried,
tried tried to find error.  See next shot...
FOUND IT!---they  dropped the design down by 1
row in the middle of the pattern!  So it was
rrrripulation to get it back to this point

and I'm all ready to start again. This pattern has
a lot of speciality stitches throughout the church
which I'm really looking forward to doing.  Realized
today there are some advantages to growing older --I
do have more patience--years ago I would have through
this out rather than track down the error!  But it's great
to move forward knowing all is as it should be.

may your fingers be flying...Peg


  1. You must have a lot of patience. It will be worth it.

  2. Oh yes, the infamous add a stitch in the middle of the pattern! In this case the three "m" symbols! Ugh! Wishing you speedy restitching!
    Looks like a very pretty pattern and colors!

  3. Wishing you stitching joy with the rest of the pattern -i'm sure it will be beautiful ;)

  4. I have tossed more than one project because of errors I had made. Good for you for sticking with it. It will be beautiful when done.
