Disaster Recovery

Well, after last night's realization that I truly messed up almost a month's worth of work on cross stitch, I am much calmer now. The breakdown is over. The tears didn't spill; but they were darned close to the edge thanks to a heightened level of frustration.

So, today I went out and bought some nice Irish linen in a tea colour (reasonably dark). I think the coat of arms will look even better on the darker colour and on the linen as opposed to the aida. I suspect it might be a little more difficult to count threads in the linen; but quarter and three quarter stitches will be easier. So, tonight I will baste the 10 x 10 grid onto the linen before double and triple checking my placement. I don't want to go through this all over again.
