A Few Completed Pieces

Normally I like to stitch big projects, but recently I've been stitching little pieces with what I consider cute sayings.  Right now I'm working on Lizzie Kate's Normal so apparently I haven't burned out on this style yet. Don't know what I'm going to do with them, but will figure something out later. But I have a question for my stitching friends. 

On the Don't Interrupt piece the designer alternated colors for each letter throughout the piece except in the word "Interrupt".  Since I started in the center and counted up to the first letter, that was the first word I did and it was completed before noticing the alternating colors.  Do you think this was a chart misprint or do you think the designer intended it to be this way?

These haven't been laundered and pressed yet so forgive the wrinkles.

I Can Resist

Please let me know what you think about the Don't Interrupt piece.  Should I leave it as is or should I take out the U-P-T and re-stitch them in alternate colors?  I know it boils down to individual taste, but I'm interested in whether or not this comes across as an intentional design issue or if it looks like a stitching error to you.

Thanks for your comments,



  1. On the interrupt design i think the designer wanted it like that, I like it.

  2. I wouldn't change a thing. It looks great just as it is.
    Congrats with all 3 finishes :)

  3. I think I would have to make it match the rest, but that's just me. Everything looks great though. Love the colors in Don't Interrupt! Lovely.

  4. I love all your finishes. If you hadn't pointed the colours in interrupt, I wouldn't have noticed.I wouldn't change, even because you will have the same problem between the -t- and the m- of the following word.

  5. Great finishes. I like the Don't interrupt just the way it is. It looks just fine. Love the colors in it too.

  6. I just found your blog and have thoroughly enjoyed reading your posts...I am now a follower!

    Your finishes are wonderful and I love the colors of "Don't Interrupt."

  7. I think the Interrupt piece looks just fine. I had to look three times to figure out why you wanted to change it. LOL

    Congrats on all your finishes.

  8. I think it was designed that way. Each word ends and starts with an alternating color. I would leave it.

  9. Lovely finishes! Congrats!
