I was on my way to a friend's studio for a day of running amok with dye and cloth when my faithful green pony finally succumbed to the leaky radiator that I have been ignoring for a couple of months.

We'll try again later in the the meantime I've gotten two large pieces stabilized and started stitching on this one. Twice I stitched for an hour and twice I picked it all out unhappy with the results. I think I need to sit with a book for while and remind myself of all that be done with needle and thread.

is it the outline stitch that is discommbobulating you?

try backstitching the outline. you can follow the lines easier imho. it grounds it too, unlike outline and/or stem stitch, which tend to make the lines more vertical...does that make sense???
