An update on my patisserie project. Everything was going along really well.
I finished the upper edge of the awning and the border around the iron sign with the double knot stitch. I stitched the curtain swags with a couching stitch.
I also used the double knot stitch on the top of the curtains. I was loving the way it looked when I noticed the spacing between all the knots was not quite right on the left-most curtain top. I just had to go and fix it, which meant taking the stitching out. Can you spot the resulting disaster?
Here is a closer look. I used my scissors to take the stitching out and snipped right through the fabric. You may remember when I did this exact same thing on another project. That time, the damage wasn't as bad. I don't know how I am going to fix this!
On a much happier note, we had a beautiful, sunny weekend and I took some pictures of my daffodils:

And one of my rhubarb plants:
I'll be back soon to post some pictures of my zinnia wip - much happier news on that progress!
