The Frog came visiting

I sat down to work on my afghan yesterday, and realized that I had backstitched the one square with backstitching in the wrong color. I am sure I could have fudged the color and changed it, but I like things to be right, so I spent the afternoon frogging it. Lesson learned: verify twice, count three times, and stitch once. I do not like the way it looks, as this fabric tends to pill. I don't know what to do, but I think it will tame down once it's fixed. And I won't do that again.

I also decided I am making a Little House Needleworks chart for my mom for Christmas. It's one that references the little brown hare, and we've had rabbits in the yard all summer. It's a very, how do I say this, Mom chart, with soft colors and a little bunny on it. She's looked at it at the LNS a couple times, and I think she would like that one. I don't even think it would be tooo expensive to have framed for her, either. I just have to figure out where I stuck it in my bedroom. I think it fell behind the trunk against the wall, but not sure.

What fabric are you using? I think the same way you do but still the frog can appear, especially when I'm tired ;o)

Oh, I love that chart! Good choice :o)

I do my thing and you do yours. I am not in this world to live up to your expectations, and you are not in this world to live up to mine. You are you and I am I, and if by chance we find each other, then it is beautiful. If not, it can’t be helped--Frederick Perls
