Sometimes it can't be saved
I printed these fabrics a few years ago using gigantic leaves from some weed plant in my yard. It's hard to tell but there are 3 separate prints on this one fabric. The plan was to make placemats. I started stitching them a few months ago and kept hoping that the next layer of stitching would turn them into something acceptable.
This one is actually the best of the group and I was far enough into them that I've just kept on stitching the past two days.
Then this happened and that was all I needed to bring this project to an end. These will either be donated to a shelter for cat bed liners or put in Chris' painting rag bin. I'm not spending one more minute on them
I have another set of 4 printed fabrics in gold/green colors and I don't know what I'll do with them. But I'm moving on to glass or binding or mosaic today and not wasting any more time here!

Sometimes quitting is the best solution.

totally agree with you - sometimes it is just not worth struggle over one more minute. There are always more things to work on.

Boy - can I relate!! When it stops being fun - I tend to stop and switch to something else - and there's always something else - ;))

There comes a time when you just have to pull the plug. The wisdom is in knowing when. There are so many ideas to make, that one cannot suck all the time and energy especially when it seems it is going nowhere fast.

Yes, I do believe it was time to toss those. But, I really hate it when I have to toss a project. Some part of me has my depression era Grandparents' spirit of never throwing away anything that might be useful.
