Took stupid to a whole new level
Made a boo boo on the boarder of a little ditty...let the frogging begin. Just one problem, thought Iā€™d just snip it on the back, trash the floss, and start over. Good plan, except I snipped the top, should have been the bottom. Well šŸ’©!

Gee whiz, I have never had that happen to me except all the time. I think that most cross stitchers are self taught after seeing someone else's work and asking "what is that and how do you do that?" From then on, it is just learning from our mistakes. On my first teeny project, I was afraid the stitches would come loose-until-I had to frog and it seemed like it took twice as long to frog as it took to stitch! Sorry!! Pam

Join the c!ub. Been doing counted cross stitch since 1950 or 1951. I was stitching one small area that was off on on line! No problem, did the same goof before. When it go to frogging, Ooooo. I was using my seam ripper and I slipped. It ripped stitches and the fabric and repairs never let it look like it did.
So, grateful to learn new thing, wept like a baby and decided to not do it again. Never frog if you are tired. I mean, after all, it had been many years since I put in a stitch if I was tired, but now I need to learn to not remove stitches if tired!
