....however it just did not turn out how I expected - it does not look like a bloom but more like an amorphous cell (just like the ones I have been working on for my latest Biology publication at work! lol!)
So, today I will be frogging the entire thing! Now, this is the second time I have frogged something I stitched on this piece of linen - I didn't like the butterfly I stitched the first time, either. However, I think that I have found the right design this time! I have a second piece of linen the same size, which I have half stitched a squirrel on it. Both pieces are gifts for my swapaway and are meant to go in the lid of a round box.
So, today the plan is frogging and then re-stitching a new design for the third time! Wish me luck!
Don't forget to check out whether everyone else who signed up for FNWF was more successful than me!
Update: 6pm: It took me most of the day but it is all frogged now - so onto Attempt #3 tomorrow!
