Mary, Mary Quite Contrary

The holiday weekend allowed me quite a bit of stitching time. (Though I also spent time in the garden. Remind me never to leave my garden in May again!) I keep discovering crazy color mistakes. The first one was that I stitched those vertical stripes one shade lighter than they should have been (corrected). Now I realize that arm should be outlined in ecru, not green. Sigh. Onward!

What a lovely design. Don't you just hate it when you pick up a WIP and realise that you have to frog before you can even start stitching again... :)

Well, at least the colors you are stitching with are such pretty ones to work with--it probably makes re-stitching the mistakes just a bit easier :)

Great progress! Don't tell anyone, but sometimes I leave the wrong color and make do.

So sorry the frogs have been visiting you! Hope they stay away now and you can continue on.

Story of my stitching life! Glad I'm not the only one.

Sorry about the mishaps with the wrong thread colors! The colors are very restful though.

Frustrating! Hopefully the frog has left and you can continue on. All the colours are lovely though.

Mary is being very contrary! Hope the frog stays away from now on.
