Well after a couple of weeks of not feeling hygienic enough to touch stitching, I finally felt well enough yesterday to pick up Skeleton Crew to start stitching my part of the Round Robin.
I thought I’d start on the Sea Serpent across the bottom of the chart. It was already started and I just needed to continue it on – right ?? Right ????
Life doesn’t work that simply for Mel this year. Mel should have known it was a trap. She started stitching and the discovered something was deeply awry ….
The serpent was out of alignment and my stitching looked thinner than the previous section. This required some investigation. Perusing back through journal entries from previous round robiners a pattern emerges …. a goblin has been stalking this project.
Each entry seems eerily similar … started stitching, found the previous section was out by 10 or 12 stitches, this is sooo unlike stitcher X, she is always so careful. I’ve unstitched and restitched section B and stitched section C.
And now its my turn. Its obvious. A gremlin is stalking the package and restitching whole sections while it is en route to make it wrong. This is baaaad. I will leave the project out overnight where Abby can keep watch ….
I hope a gremlin snack doesn’t give her indigestion ….
