cross stitch

Oh no, a mistake…

I wanted to get to stitching today. I was feeling good since it’s been an all day art day…then I realized I overworked myself.

I made a mistake, it’s a color mistake. Not sure how I will blend it, but I don’t want to take out the thread.

Can you see the mistake on the jockey’s pants?

I’m very embarrassed to post this.

At least another column was almost completed.

I’m going to put away my art for the day, and rest.

Tomorrow is another day…
