Sistine Chapel is No More!!!

So tonight I was working on my Sistine Chapel.  I had decided to start a new section to see if I could fix the mistake I made on the last section.   As you know, I had emailed the designer and her response was "Focus on ensuring the adjacent scenes are aligned and it'll work itself out with the background."   As a math teacher, I just can't do that.  It has to add up for me and all be equal!!!  If you look at the first picture,  this is as far as I got before I made the decision to stop.

See the pink section all by itself?   The open space to the below it should be 18 squares however, mine is only 15!!!!  I don't know where I went wrong.   I have decided that as much as I loved stitching this pattern, I am done!  I like things to add up when I do counted cross stitch!    

I felt a huge relief when I made this decision.  I am going to happily work on my other UFO's and to start making a dent in my collection.  What do you think of my decision???  Would you continue working on it or just say, I am done!

As you know, Christmas is coming and I do sell Thirty-One products!!!  We have some wonderful stocking stuffers for $20 and under if you are needing some personalized gifts!!!

Augusta is FINISHED!!!!

Did anyone feel the earth shake last night???  It was me dancing all over my living room!  I finished my Augusta the 13th hole!!!  This is it right off the qsnaps.  I started it in 2007 but got bored stitching trees so I put it up for a few years.   However, I decided this year that it was my oldest UFO so it had to be finished.

I do have to wash this piece.  How do you wash your pieces.  I am thinking of washing it in the sink with Dawn dish soap.   Any other good ideas???? next oldest UFO is the my Faery Tales from Heaven and Earth designs.  This design is 49 pages and it so pretty!!!  

I have 3 pages completed!!!!  This is my next UFO project.   I hope to have it finished by Dec. 2016.
