    Part Two FMQers..Don't Do This

    Thanks to all of you who read and commented on my post FMQers...Don't Do This! I am happy to say that I finally got all of those itty bitty stitches out WITHOUT putting a hole into the backing which would have really added insult to injury. My thanks for all of the suggestions about "unstitching." I think I used them all. Because of arthritic fingers I had to work in small spurts, but got 'er done last night. I certainly did use the suggestions about pinning or basting the backing and batting before requilting that area. I am now moving on to binding. Give me a couple of days and I'll happily post the finished project in the "Pictures" section. So glad to be able say this! Thanks to all.

    Yea!! I can imagine the large sigh of relief when that task was done.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I spent several hours on Monday picking out stitches, not for the same reason, but for one that I could have totally avoided if I had been thinking. Glad your project was saved.
