A little fussing

How is it that you can stitch a pattern and it stitch up so beautifully and so easily and then you stitch the same pattern, using the same fabric (same exact cut), and same thread and it be the biggest PITA?
I stitched that cute little ornie I showed in my last post and then I stitched it again. OMG! It liked to have driven me crazy. I had to frog not once, not twice, but three times. And each time it was about 1/4 to 1/3 of the outside border. The last frogging I did was just as I thought I was through and was attaching the beads and noticed on the right corner I was 1 (yes 1) thread off. I started to leave it, but then I thought, this project is important. And it is important that I do my best work.
So rip, rip, rip I went.
But it is done. And they are both beautiful. I am going to finish them in the next day or two and I will post pics. You can try to guess which one was the PITA.

I think we have all been there done that. It is so frustrating at the time....but the frustration goes away when you actually complete the project and see your beautiful piece in living color. Looking forward to pictures.
