Our epic tale begins the Monday after Easter as our young heroine takes out Rose of Sharon to work on. A few happy hours of stitching, and she picks the next symbol to work on.
"Oh, it's a blend. Let's see 814 & 898. Hmm...898 is brown."
But she hasn't used that particular brown in this design. And she knows that she has already stitched this symbol before. She hunts up a previous stitch and compares.
Horror! She used 498 in place of 898! Is she losing her sight? Is her handwriting that bad???
She wonders if it should be changed. She dithers. She ponders. She questions the universe. The universe does not answer.
It must be frogged and replaced. The shading will be wrong. And if she didn't it would nag her forever!
Decision made, she fortifies herself with chocolate and coffee and bravely takes up the monumental task.
30 minutes and 25 stitches later she is done. She glances around, hopes no one noticed that the epic frogging was not very epic and quickly and quietly moves on.
