"It takes ages to finish a quilt you're not working on!"

My eagle-eyed husband has picked up an error on this - and it ain't my mistake! In the top left corner, the tree to the right of the deer doesn't look right. The stitches on the left hand side are not symmetrical like the other trees. I have stitched it exactly as the pattern shows, but having just looked at the model photo on the chart, that has been done correctly. WAAH - do I correct it or leave it? Just a matter of adding another stitch or two...I hope.

As soon as you mentioned where the error was in the pattern my eyes went to it straight away, and yes you are correct in that it dosen't look right. I would add the few stitches needed to make it symetrical with the other trees in the pattern, otherwise you will find that while you are stitching it you will keep looking at that section because it isn't the same as the others. I am always coming across errors in patterns, and as long as it isn't a big deal for me to correct them I do otherwise it would do my head in. Do you think that I sometimes think about my stitching too much...............

It's looking great by the way, can't wait to see the next photo

This is neat. Almost every cross stitch project I've done never seems to look just right so I'm not much help there. lol It still looks neat and I'll look forward to seeing the updated photos.

Hi Ladies, thank you for your comments on my project. I have decided to fix that error, it is only a matter of two stitches, and if I left it, I'm sure the person I'm doing it for would think it was my mistake, not the chart!

I would correct it Gina. But that's the perfectionist in me as well as the designer in me!

I would have left it. After all, in nature, every tree is different:)
