Still Catching Up

Maybe I'm just slow, but the after-vacation catch-up is taking a while. First, I forgot to post my TUSAL pic, and I'm now three days late (oops). I'm pretty sure I lost some orts during my travels, but oh well!
I've been working my way back into blogland by reading backwards until I get caught up at each blog I visit. It takes a while to read and click on the interesting stuff, so hours pass and not much progress is made. Ya'll have been busy! I love seeing what's been happening.
On my stitchy front, here's where I stand in Eden. The end is definitely close!

During my little changes here and there, I think I've left too many spaces between the lines of writing. I'm gonna stitch the half-stars on the bottom and make a decision about unstitching the second row. I'm even gonna shorten the motifs by one stitch to help things along. I really don't wanna unstitch and restitch at this point, but I'm not sure just ignoring it is gonna work for me. I just realized that I'm gritting my teeth while I type! Deep breathing may help. Unstitching is part of stitching, right?

This is my short little post for today. There are things to do and places to go this afternoon, so I'm off. Make some fun.

Oh yes, you are so close! I hope that you can compensate without having to do that not so fun reverse stitch!

Your TUSAL pic is really cute, Doris! I love how your ATS looks - I don't think I'd change it but if it makes you grit your teeth... The whole thing was way too much work to ever walk by it and have a regret. Personally, I love it and can't wait to do a little jig for you when it's all done!

"Penelope-ing" is part of the process, how much we hate it.
But do you really need to ?

Doris, You are so, so close! It looks wonderful and I can't wait for your finish so that I can happy dance with you!

To tell you the truth, I wouldn't take anything out. I don't think there is too much space between the lines of writing and along the bottom couldn't you just repeat some of the motifs from above (the bird, the bunny, etc.) and fill that space in? Don't rip out. It looks so nice as it is.
