It's the first Saturday of the month so time for the People's Choice SAL run by Jo from Serendipitous Stitching. Continued thanks to Jo for hosting this unique SAL which has a different theme each month.
This month's theme is Stitching Disasters.
I'm hoping, in the nicest sense, that this topic is relatively, if not completely, empty for everyone.
For me, I don't know if it's down to luck or care, but I can honestly say I've never had any stitching disasters.
I've never spilt anything, cut anything, damaged anything or had colours run when washing anything. All of my stitching has, thankfully, been very straight forward and non-dramatic.
Yes, I've had to restart a handful of projects after a few hours because I've chosen the wrong fabric or thread, but I wouldn't call them disasters.
I do admit to recently making a mistake cutting a project I'm FFOing, but it's retrievable, so even though it won't be FFOd quite how I wanted it, it's still not a disaster.
All in all, fortune has definitely been on my side for over 25 years.
But so as not to have a completely empty post, here's a disaster I would like to stitch, although it's currently about 1,759th on my to-stitch list! Along with many people I have a morbid fascination with Titanic, and this is my favourite chart, a now out-of-print kit by Dimensions called The Night To Remember:
And that's it!
Next month's theme is Designer Of The Year. This could be approached from quite a few angles, so I'll have to decide which one.
