Near Disaster

Lauren and Maria decided to help me stitch my A Page for the Erica Michaels book. Unfortunately they took the scissors to it and made 7 holes in it, right in the middle of the stitching. Fortunately, there were only 1 or 2 threads clipped in each section. I did some creative reorganization to make sure stitching covered the holes and disregarded some stitching rules like stitches go over 2 threads. So that's why some of my stitches look a little messed up, but from a distance I don't think you can tell. That's what I'm telling myself anyway.

I changed some of the threads. I used some golds to lighten it up a little bit.

Here's My A Page

And I finally scanned in the cows that I have received so far!

The A page looks great Autumn, you'd never know anything happened to it. And the cows are darling!

Your page looks great. I'm interested in doing this book also as it is so cute finished. One question, where did you purchase the Rainbow Gallery threads for each letter? I'm not sure where to look online and did you substitute any of the colors or use what they recommended?

Thanks for the help.

Great job! Looks like you were able to camoflauge the work of your "helpers" quite well! I'm looking forward to working on this one :)
