Their Song Progress

I pulled Their Song out of my UFO basket on Friday and immediately discovered why I stopped working on it. Somewhere among the leaves and cherries was a mistake. It turned out to be one of those things that fudging would only make worse, so I did some frogging and restitching and now everything is as right as rain. My goal over the weekend was to get the tree and blackbird finished which I happlily accomplished except for the cherry stems which are backstitched. I don't know about you guys but backstitching? I need to be in the right mood for it!

Since Monday was Valentine's Day I celebrated by stitching some of the red bits. I am officially on the second page now and was thinking I'd finish this up by the end of the week. I know that sounds crazy for slow stitchin' me but anything's possible!

We've had temps above freezing this week and the snow is melting everywhere. We can finally see over the mountains of snow at the foot of the driveway when we're backing out! Is spring arriving early this year?

Love to see your stitching. This is a favorite of mine, but it has become impossible to get the pattern now. Guess I'll just enjoy watching your finish. LOL

Have a great day!

I'm glad you're back on track after the frogging. Sometimes fudging doesn't help and you have to bite the bullet and frog! It's looking great!

We haven't had the snow that a lot of you have had, just rain rain and more rain!
