and that's too put it mildly. i was sitting here, minding my own business, placidly stitching together the last slipper. then i decided i'd better fetch the other ones, and start embroidering, when i discovered that one of the slippers i'd done earlier didn't match the first three, so i've been fighting trying to find the ends i wove in so tightly (these were for teenage girls, after all), and undo the knot from the stitching. then i have to unstitch, and rip back to where i screwed up, and start over. sigh. there are times when this obsession is a curse.
