am I that I will have to give up on something I waited so excited for for a long time. I applied as a ghoststitcher in january 2008 and I received my first model to stitch for them yesterday. It is something that will be stitched with a lot of dark red on 28ct. white fabric (no linen). And they ask for complete coverage....but with 2 plys dark red on white it doesn't cover completely especially not there where quaterstitches are necessary... And when I emailed a pic of my little start they suggested to stitch with one or two threads more. Arrrrgh I tried it and it feels not comfortable at all and to me it looks bulky and not nice. And also it takes me a lot of time to make the threads lay flat and nice. How shell I then be able to stitch about 200-300 crosses every night? Is anyone of you a modelstitcher or ghoststitcher and how do you handle things like that?
I think I will just let them know that I just can't do it and send it back or whereever they want me to send it. That is than the sad end of a dream I always had....
Yesterday evening was dedicated to the model but on wednesday I let the sun rise over the West Coast and even palmtree started to grow ;)
