Ellenor Wycks . . .uh-oh

I've been trying to start Ellenor Wycks as part of an SAL.

This is as far as I've managed to stitch:

Actually, I had the whole row of red double running acorns worked in and had started the pale gold fill-in. That is when I discovered that I had gone over three threads instead of two in one spot. Since this is a symmetrical band with a matching set of acorns, I would either have to remember where I went off so I could duplicate it (not likely) and deal with slightly changing a leaf motif (also not likely) or rip it back.

So I ripped.

In the US, we went on Daylight Savings Time last night, which meant one less hour of sleep and/or stitching time. I'm blaming that.

Enjoy stitching your 'Ellenor' ... she is such a beautiful sampler!

Let's hope there will be no more ripping. Enjoy

I love all the posts about Ellenor. She is lovely. Hopefully the frog will stay away for awhile :)

Sounds like the same start I had with Ellenor! I hope there will be no more ripping for you, only fun stitching ahead.

Oh Ann this happens to us all at sometime, hopefully there will be no more on Ellenor.
