Sistine Chapel Uh-Oh

Before I get into my UH-Oh...let's start out with great news...I got my biopsy results back and I do not have skin cancer on my nose!  I was pretty certain that it wasn't nothing but it is better to be safe than sorry.   When I went back to school on Monday it was a great teaching moment.  My kids pointed out that I had a red scab on my nose so I had to tell them what happened.

I got some stitching mail this week!!!!   I had run out of certain DMC colors to finish my husbands Augusta 13th hole golf project.  So I ordered them from 123stitch.  I spent $7.50 (rounding up) on DMC now I can finish his present!!   

Need Advice please!!! Please send me your suggestions!!!!

 Below is my Sistine chapel.  I checked and double check the stitching when I started the new scene.  I finished one page and then moved to the second page...The first page was the border and brown left triangle portion...the next page was the colors, rest of the triangle and the devil.  however....I am off by 2 rows!!!  I have no idea how this happened!  I have emailed the designer for help because the book said that the devil sections may not line up correctly.  So would you move to a different scene and then work your way back down to see if you could find your mistake or rip out two pages and start again???? 

This is  a better close up..see were the purple lines start on the top right???  they should be 2 rows up!  UGH!!!!

I'm glad to hear that the test came back negative. That must be a relief.

As for the problem with the Sistine Chapel... Hmmm. I think I would probably rip it out. But, if you say you've counted and can't find the mistake, I think it might be better to move on to a different section, and then see how it all fits together.

I don't understand why the book would say that the devil sections may not line up. That confuses me a lot.

Good luck!

I'd start on a different section.

Glad to hear it wasn't skin cancer.

Whoops... I accidentally signed my comment anonymous!

I would start on a different section until you figure out exactly where your mistake is.

Glad to hear your biopsy was negative! I would wait to hear form the designer (and hope she answers) and work on a different section in the meantime.

Heather said...

Good news! I world start on another section as well.

Yayy good news :)

Happy to hear your test was negative Vickie.
If it won't make a big difference in that area, I would just leave it.

Ugh, I hate when that happens! I think I'd move on and come back later to fix it. :)

So glad your biopsy was negative for cancer!! YEY!!!

As for your Oops, I think I would probably see if there was a way to work around it first. The designer's comment about it not lining up correctly is strange. I might even take a piece of graph paper and see if I could work it out on paper first. Then I might just frog a little bit of it rather than all of it and try to make it work. If I got too frustrated, then I'd start on another section and work on that for a while and then come back to it. Good luck! I hope you get it figured out!!
