The disappointing thing is I now have to frog most of the light blue cross stitch back to where the medium blue cross stitch ends as I have discovered I've done that whole section one cross to the left. The good thing is it's cross stitches I have to frog and not speciality stitches - thank goodness!
I am happy though as I have started doing the Queen Stitches which I was absolutely dreading and although they are time consuming and fiddly I can do them. Just goes to show instead of worrying over something for ages until it comes up I should have just grabbed a spare piece of fabric and given them a try.
Anyway onto good things. I received my layaway order this week from Crafty Kitten which I paid off just after Christmas. Dawn was keeping hold of the order until all the threads came in and until the third part of the Lizzie Kate SAL arrived. I'm still waiting on some beads and the fabric for the Lizzie Kate but that just means I get an extra surprise from the postie at some point.
This is the Lizzie Kate Mystery SAL Things Unseen. I ordered the charts, threads, embellishment pack and fabric from Crafty Kitten. Not sure when I will start this piece yet but I love the thread colours.
These are the supplies I need for the Glendon Place chart Plum Pudding. I am doing this as a SAL with Mrs Milky Bar Kid (aka Amanda) and starting on 1st March. Just waiting for some more of the beads for this piece but it's not a problem because I am sure it will be a while yet before I get to the beading.
I think when I've frogged the part of the Twisted Band Sampler I may stitch on something else for a while as I'm feeling a bit demoralised. I don't think I've ever frogged a pattern so many times. It's all my own fault as I haven't counted or read the pattern properly and because of the design I just feel I can't fudge round the problem like I would normally. I might go back to Seaside Mystery for a while as it's been ages since I stitched on that.
