Does anyone have some Frog-B-Gone?

Argh! Had my B square almost all stitched- was stitching the border before I put the beads on- and realized I was a row off. My block was shorter than the other one.. it didn't look too obvious but it would bother me so I had to frog almost all I had stitched! I may post my progress later anyway, though it's not much..

If you find any, send me some Tracey! I spent all evening frogging a mistake--even more frustrating it was one the designer had made on the chart, not me! Oh well, at least it can be re-stitched, right?

I've let my frogs stay on the project I'm working on. I just can't stand to start over since I'm so slow to begin with.

Oh I wish I had some of that! There are days when they just seem to move in and never leave. I know unstitching is awful but you will be happier when it is done! Keep your chin up!

I ran out of it the other night, Tracey. Like you, I looked and looked again to see if I could get away with it, but alas, the frogging began. I always try to put it right before I put it up. It helps to pick it back up the next time.

Wish I did; I'd send it on over!

the only way i know to treat that is by just taking a break from the project!

I need some too! The frogs seem to be out in full force.

OUCH!! That is not fun at all. I wish they did make something like Frog Be Gone or we all could have been born with unstitching powers - like twitch our noses of something!

I like that 'frog b gone' wish there was such a thing!!

What a neat thing frog-b-gone would be! I had to frog out the same section three times last night!

Urgh!!! I say, fudge if you can, frog only if you must. Hope the frogs leave soon. Your ME ornament is adorable, btw!

I've found that getting some sleep helps some but if you are making mistakes put it down.
I just took out all of the outside stitching of the pear tree the mistake was at the top! I don't like the ornament at all and I have started all over on it twice. If I do get it done my mom gets it she thinks it is so cute.
Hang in there!!!
Sometimes I take it all out and put it all back in, in the same day. Then when I pick it up again I can make new mistakes to rip out! Clever huh?
Take care ~

I used to tell my daughters when they were learning cross stitch that is wasn't really cross stitch if you didn't have to rip out along the way. I feel you pain.....I don't use that expression anymore. Frogging is so frustrating. It is like those pounds you loose and gain and have to loose again! PS Love the poncho. It does look cozy!
