Hear that sound?

It's me, screaming. If you look at the picture I posted the other day, you will see that the larger flower on the bottom right is one row higher than the small flower. Is it supposed to be that way, you might ask? Um, no, of course not. Yes, I managed to misread the chart and make an error that wasn't discovered till I was well on my way to completing the flowers on the left side of the chart. Note to self - check, check and double-check your counting! I frogged out the flower and am re-stitching it. Believe me, I almost convinced myself to leave it as is, but I just couldn't do it. And now I am cutting my losses and going to bed. After all, as Scarlett O'Hara would say, tomorrow is another day!

What a shame. Frogging is no fun is it? Lets hope it goes pretty straight forward from here.

Soooo frustrating! I totally understand--I just put aside an xmas ornament that I started, because I would stitch a letter, find something wrong, frog and restitch--for 5 letters in a row!!! Aaargghhh!!! I must need to re-learn my abc's and 123's! ha! ha!

Oh, that's so frustrating. I'm not sure if I would have had the patience to frog it. If the off placement wouldn't have interferred with other parts of the design, I'd just say "creative licence, I think it looks better like that."

I did have to do some frogging last night, but it was only about 10 minutes of work, and a single color.

I know what you mean, one row off and that would be the only thing I would see every time I looked at the finished piece. Frogging bites!!!

It will get better!! :)

I'm sorry about your mistake. It didn't look to bad though. At least you didn't have to frog out much.

That is so frustrating! We all do it though and it's all part of the fun ( ?!) of stitching! LOL!
