SNOW LEOPARD: 1700 STITCHES -- TO FROG?
I have stitched at least one-third of the first page of this chart. It has all been black, and is now getting some deep grape color added. However, since the first 10x10 square, I don't like that you can see a little bit of white through all the black squares. I have been on this blog, on the HAED bulleting board and blog, looked at Google Images at stitched HAEDs and I see a lot of this in many charts. But it bugs me -- however, I have just kept on stitching. Finally today, I decided to do one 10x10 with three strands of floss, instead of the two I have been using. WOW, that made all the difference in the world, and is how I wanted it to look, so I have to do it this way. I tried to go over the existing stitching with one strand, but it is too hard to see where the needle goes in all that tread that is the same color, sooooooooooooo I have started frogging every stitch that I had done in these past two weeks and will be starting all over again. Don't know whether this chart is cursed or I am the one cursed, but this little cute cuddly leopard and I have been off to a very rough start. This will be my fourth start. But, I am committed and sticking to it. Just hope I have enough years left to get this one done. It hasn't proven very efficient yet, but I still have hope.
Thanks for listening and sharing my pain.
