There has been a picture of a frog that has gone around the stitching forums that I frequent. This picture is exactly what I think of every time I have to remove any and all stitching.
This is a fabulous rendition of the frog giving you the finger while you rip out hard work that you had done. What a total little shit this froggie is.
Ripping out backstitching is the worst thing to me! It got to the point that I was starting to pull out stitches, so I had to put it down, back away, and then go back to the piece to try again. What a pain in the ass, but I finally got the sections fixed, and I resumed my backstitching.
Because of Memorial Day, I did not get anything done yesterday, and today did not see great progress because of the frogging. However, two more flip-flops are outlined.
The last flip-flops will take some additional time as the yellow stripes are outlined in purple, and then I will be able to backstitch the rest. So close to being done, but I'm still afraid I won't make the end of the month deadline I gave myself.
