https://stitchandfrog.com - She had several patterns of Gigi R - and it seems like it is harder to find a good selection of Gigi R patterns in the United States. Naturally, I will make a few changes. I seem to miscount at least once a day when stitching, which is getting old. And I fix it when it is not a planned change.

Using the dmc threads except for the tree and a bit of the pine border and that is WDW Dried Thyme. The color called for was too brown, not green. There is a crescent moon in white, and lots of snow, but the whites do not show up, and I like the door - but yellow snow is not a good idea. Will stitch the rest of the parts I do like and maybe then just move on to another pattern. You can see from the whites in the roof stars that they are just too close in color to show. I did stitch some areas in white just to really know - like the moon - and that is when the unstitching started.
I am stitching with the intent just to enjoy stitching - not to frame what I stitch. Just to use up what I have in my stash - finish up a few things that I have started.
