Cross Stitch Update

I found the reason why I was going to restart this, but, as so many more stitches when in, I've decided to get friendly with the seam ripper, and take out the offending block of stitches.  I'm doing  bit by bit, so it doesn't get too disheartening.
At the same time, work on the hands has been going on.  It's really a weird sensation to walk past and see the hands appearing like this.  All the confetti stitches and the bad chart seem to be a small price to pay.
 
It'll be interesting to see what changes there will be after another week.

Coming along but I know how you feel when you have to remove stitches. Hang in there it will look great when you are done.

Ripping out cross stitch is one of the hardest things to do. Hope it goes well for you and you can make progress on it again! :0)

I don't envy you doing all that frogging. But you have more stick-to-it-iveness than anyone I know!

Ripping out stitches is not fun...but worth it in the end.
