I'll be frogging this evening. Pesky creatures. This wasn't even my fault. It's bad enough getting frogs from miscounts but they are especially annoying when the key and chart are to blame.
I started the coat on Crabby November. Got all the outside stitched. Started the inside color and thought, "This is a really strange color combination." So I looked at the photograph which shows a peachy colored coat, not blue. %^%*$$#&#@! Excuse my language.
So I went to Raise the Roofs' website. Looked at their Oops page. Sure enough, it's listed. I'd read this before, I remember. However, even the mistake is listed incorrectly on their page! It sez : cents sign symbol is DMC 825 is DMC 3712. WTF?
I obviously needed clarification.
That's a circle symbol on the chart. There is no cents sign symbol.
Somehow, when I'd read this months ago, I thought they were speaking of the backstitching on the coins in the December chart. To top that, the color to use for the BS on the coins isn't listed so that reinforced that belief.
I hate frogs.
Thank you for visiting my blog today!
Oh dear,those frogs hop out of that pond at the most inconvenient time, I know 'cos they visit me too!! But all your efforts are looking good! Keep up the good work
I guess frogs are bad?! haha
I don't really understand what a 'frog' is in stitching but if it's a goof-up...I have a lot of frogs.
I hate frogs too! Lots's of times I get mixed up when two symbols look alot alike. I should have learned by now to look closely at the pattern before I start stitching. HeHe. Althought frogging isn't a laughing matter is it?
Those darn frogs...they've got to be the most loathesome of beasts for us stitchers. Hope they hop away and don't come back :)
Yes, frogs SUCK! You'll make it through and you'll have a gorgeous project. I have so enjoyed seeing your progress on this!
Oh no! Sorry to hear you'll be frogging! I hate flogs too. I, also, hate it when the centered marks on the chart aren't actually centered!
That totally stinks!!! Hopefully the frogging doesn't take too long.
Oh man, I hate frogs too. I hope that they don't visit anymore. I do hate when a chart has mistakes on it!!
I think many many moons ago I complained about this same mistake. And I forgot about it... or I would've warned you.
This is the reason I stopped stitching Michael Powell kits/patterns which I used to love. When I wrote them that the chart didn't seem to match the model (Cottage Garden I), they sent me a NEW chart, which ALSO didn't match the model. Don't designers realize that we fall in love with the MODEL? Yes, I do change the colors from the chart or model from time to time, but when I WANT to stitch the model, I expect the chart to match.
I have a Dimensions kit I am working on now that has a flower symbol on the chart, but NOT on the color guide. So I checked the model and am carrying on as best as I can to match the color.
Gosh, I am so confused ;oP Doggone frogs!
Damn frogs! Hope they stay away for the remainder of this project :)
So sorry to hear that you got ambushed by frogs...... Not a very fun thing at all!!!!
Frogs are bad!!! So sorry that happened!
Don't you just hate when frogs decide to visit. Here's hoping they've hopped off now.
Oh Hecky thump!!I hope it doesn't take long to sort it!!
Hopefully you have it all under control now. Enjoy the stitching!
Oh that stinks! I hate frogs too.I hope the frogs leave you soon. I don't know whats going on with that chart though, sounds confusing as it is.
So sorry the frog came to visit.
Oh dear how annoying ......don't we all hate it when this happens...
I'm one to stick to the frogging before stopping and that makes me so late at times.If I didn't do that I would find it hard to pick up the ptoject again..must sleep on correctly stitched work..my own worst emeny..te he
A.. Damn, frogging is so @#$%^&^%.
Hope you can chance it soon in the right color...
Now that is annoying! It's like the frogs coming from all sides. But you've had pretty good luck with this project so far and you're close to the end. So at least not too much more chance of frogs on this one.
It must have been the day for frogs to visit, because I got one of my own yesterday...I discovered that after two hours of stitching with one color, I was using the wrong one!Totally my fault. That is why I don't normally stitch at night--just don't do a good job with these old eyes :) Have fun ripping out--I'll be right there with you!
That darn frog!!!! At least you can blame RTR for sending that one ;o)
That really bites! And am I dumb or something but the correction doesn't seem to have the correct information either?
Sorry the frog came a visiting, hope he's moved on now.
Do hope you can figure it all out.
Aaargh, how frustrating! I'll have to remember that if I ever get that far on mine
It sure sucks Sharon doesn't it, those darn frogs took a little trip to Scotland last night and jumped right all over my stitching too....aaarrrrgggghhh!
I hope there is no more mistakes and fun stitching.
I hate frogs, pesky little critters, but even more so when I am not at fault ((((HUGS))))
I know what you are going through. I had to restitch one of my Boo clubs yesterday because the chart was wrong. I am sending the frog far away!
Hoping it goes better.
