This is the FSL angel I made and did all wrong - I didn't know I had to use the same thread top and bottom! I've managed to salvage her and by joining the wings and hands it's actually hidden where it went awry! The colour in the photo isn't too good, I made her pure white but the wood has reflected colour onto the angel.

It's lovely and you will know what to do the next time but I can't tell you had a problem with it.

I have seen this design in a website but don't remember its name. I like this angel and you have done a good job, as nobody else can see where it isn't perfect! Hugs, Lidia

Only you know where the mistakes are. None of us are perfect so neither is she, but she still looks great

I don't see any mistakes, she looks beautiful to me. But as they say we learn by our mistakes and only the maker knows they are there. Keep up the good work and a flower to you.

You did okay. You worked through your mistake, and did not let it get the best of you. Keep stitching.

Keep in mind - we're not perfect. It still looks good and we would not have known there was a mistake. There is an old tradition in some parts of the country when making quilts- a mistake of some kind is built into every quilt because we are not perfect. (Unfortunately I don't usually have to built one in- I always have something that just doesn't come out quite right.)

shhhh, don't tell anybody you made a mistake, I like to say that it is my own personal "artistic flair" that I have added for enhancement. hahahaha. YOU, however pulled it off! Good job. ;)

Thank you (and to everyone else who has commented - I've given you all a flower!) I have a friend who calls her crafting mistakes "happy accidents" and says if they're too perfect nobody would believe she'd made them herself!

Thank you for showing. Although YOU know you made a few mistakes, nobody seeing it would know. It looks good as it is and the next one will turn out as you intended. An experienced embroiderer is someone who has mastered the art of covering up her mistakes!! Not someone who does not make any. Flower for you.

Good comment! We all do become better at covering mistakes - that it part of learning.
