TUSAL and Corrections to Margaret Ledden

Wow! It's already April's new moon! This year is just zooming by!
Here is my TUSAL jar:

Now, if you compared this picture to last month's, you might think that I have really been making great progress. Unfortunately, that large yellow layer comes from frogging Margaret Ledden, and replacing the yellow with gray.

At first I really hated the gray compared to the yellow, but I am slowly getting used to it, though it is quite a bit drabber.

It certainly gives it an entirely different look.

I still have a ways to go before I catch up to where I left off. I have to do one more dividing band (between the H and the Q), and fill in the borders.

Hopefully this will go quickly so I can feel like I am accomplishing something again!

Oh my, that does look different!

Holy moly ~ I recognise those curly frogged threads! Great ORT post anyway!

It does look different! I think it looks great though! And now you have a pretty yellow layer in your ORT jar. :D

OH NO! That is a really big frog! I hate patterns like that :p I was once doing a beachy birth sampler and I was wondering why the shells looked ugly I had stitch gray where it was supposed to be pink :p They used S and s as their symbols :p

I had to frog some of a border I did because it was stitch over but I left the one that was a half stitch over and just mad sure I did the same mistake stitch so it would match up! I just didn't want to frog anymore :p

Ooooh I've done that and what a frustrating mistake to make!

I think the yellow was pretty, but I love the gray! Sorry about all the frogging, though--ugh. :P I think every stitcher gets a feeling of sympathy when they see that layer of curly yellow because they know what that means--ripping and ripping and ripping. :P Hopefully it's smooth sailing from now on!

Much prefer it stitched in grey - shame about the frogging though!
