13 minus one plus one!!!

Why the title to this post?  Well, read on!!!

I bet you can't spot why I cut one of the squares out?  I didn't 'see' the problem until I'd scanned the top picture and then it was glaringly obvious!!!!  Well, to me.  I could've probably 'got away with it' by carrying on but that's just NOT my way of working!!!  

So, look at the top right of the top picture and can you see the problem?  That motif is 'bulging' outwards.  So I cut it out and pared down the thread thickness and did the replacement.

This is the joy and frustration of HWT.  The joy is in the variety of colours you can mix yourself but you have to have a good BC3 to keep it under control.  My BC3 obviously took the day off when I started that square.  

The thing about HWT and using sewing weight thread is that the exact match of thickness isn't really too critical but if you're not careful you can choose one thread that is slightly too much thicker than you need.  I can't understand why I carried on with that square as it was obvious before I'd got halfway that it wasn't going to work!!!  I guess I was feeling lazy and didn't want to put things right at the time!!!

Well, now that you point it out I can see it. I know how you feel about mistakes. Sometimes they just need to be fixed!

Amazing what a difference a small change in thickness of thread can make. Yes, best sort it out or it will keep niggling you.
