Well since I haven taken up sewing I have become quite a dab hand at unpicking.  Part of the course I suppose, but it is a little heart breaking, until you unpicked all your wrongs and joy joy comes washing back.  Here is my heartbreaker today,  it just doesn't work.  Not to mention that the tension on the back was loose.  I am going to unpickit and sew straight lines.


  1. I'm sorry that you are having to pick all that out! That stinks! Your stippling really doesn't look that bad-a lot of it is the tension being off. You should try a lower-contrasting thread (I would suggest a cream thread on this one) the next time you do it. Any mistakes you make will stand out less and you'll notice your beautiful piecing more. Don't give up on the stippling!

  2. Yes I am going to redo this today, luckily its not very big, I have unpicked bigger projects before lol.
