What's worse than Algerian Eyelets?

Frogging them!!! I've started on part 4 and in the upper left corner are Algerian Eyelet's (which I don't care to do) and I had to frog a huge part of them because I had them in the wrong squares. One good thing about part 4 is that my husband figured out how to enlarge it to a normal size chart instead of the miniature print I had for part 3. I do not have to fix my mistake on part 3 either *phew*, I can compensate around it. This is so much prettier IRL, even though I am not particularly enjoying stitching this piece the results are stunning.

We are getting ready to go on vacation at the end of this week so I probably won't post again until we get back. Between work, appointments and packing there will be no stitching time :(. Although I think I might treat myself to a new start while we're away :)

I don't know how you could have stitched this with the small charts!! I can only stitch from the enlarged charts! Good thing he's figured out how to do that. Now you'll be much clearer and happier with the Chatelaines! It looks fabulous, btw.
Hugs,

Sorry to hear about the frogging, but I'm glad to hear you have enlarged the charts. I couldn't do the Chatelaine charts otherwise!

I hope you have a great vacation!!
