Fudging, frogging and another late TUSAL !

Oops....I'm late again at posting pics of my ort jar. Not only am I late at posting the picture but I think I might have forgotten to empty my orts from last month as there seems to be quite a lot of threads for the amount of stitching that I have accomplished since last time.



I have almost finished my lighthouse stitching. Just the french knots and the dreaded back stitch to do....



Unfortunately I had  to do some fudging and some frogging as I had made a mistake somewhere, but couldn't figure out where it was...arghhh....don't you just hate when that happens? Since I can't find where the mistake is I figured no-one else would know....well except you, my blogging friends! Hope you'll keep my secret!

The little french knot flowers add a bit of colour....and (gasp) I like doing french knots! Weird huh?!!


Can't wait to finish this, but then I'll have to make a decision about which of my new kits to start on next....such a nice problem to have :)

Until next time...happy stitching!

I love the colours in your lighthouse project. When I fudge, I call it using my "artistic licence". :) If you can't find the mistake no one else will either.

Happy Stitching!

It's looking fantastic! You are the only stitcher I've come across who loves doing french knots and they do make such a difference. Not long until we see the finished picture... :)

Wow!! Rhona this is a fantastic design to be working on!!! I've never seen that one before... who is it from?? Is it one of your design, perhaps?? It looks stunning. You've made such progress and obviously I can't see a fault on this :)

That lighthouse is amazing, so detailed! I can't see anything wrong with it either.

Weronika said...

Wonderful work Rhona! Such a lovely design!

Katie said...

Gorgeous. Still hope my mom doesn't see it haha. I don't mind doing french knots if they turn out right and more often then not they don't haha.

I like the way the different stitches add texture to this piece and the French Knots make great flowers.
