"When you find yourself making a lot of mistakes in various stitching projects do you find it better to muddle your way through or do you take a brief break from stitching? If you do take a break, how long do you take?"
I suppose I tend to muddle my way through but I am very obsessed about correcting any mistake I find that I have made. I know no one would ever notice but I would know it's there. If it's too far back then I try to just keep on muddling through and hope I will eventually forget about it. If it's too serious or too frustrating I will take a break. How long of a break varies. I might put the project down and never pick it back up (worst case scenario).
