Frog is gone.

I was beginning to wonder if I was supposed to stitch this Blackbird Design. It's called Snow Garden.....I started it 4 times....first over 1, then decided I wanted it full sized. So I pulled out a piece of Stormy sky 32ct. even weave I had in my stash....got the house done and did NOT like the way the colors were turning out....they didn't look anything like the cover pic so I frogged the house and chose my own colors using 4 of called for colors but one of those for a different symbol.Then I got the border and house done and the border was off 1/2 thread so I had to frog all of it. Finally started and continued with no further problems.

Looks beautiful! Congratulations on sticking it out and finishing - That's perseverance!

I'm doing BBD's Noel Bird and I probably changed at least half the colors. The colors in the picture are what attracted me so that is what I matched up to rather then the given list.

I always wonder if I will ever like a project that gives me fits of start-overs and frogging but yours has turned out so pretty.
I'm sorry it was a bit troublesome for you but you could never tell from the stitching.

That is lovely. I'm working on the Anniversaries of the Heart all on one piece of fabric. I started in the center with Swan lake and worked up... jus tabout to go to the Jan design. I've read so many comments, I'm going to take a hard look at colors before I start!
