Well, I think I have chased the frog away from my house. I threatened to sic the dogs on him if he didn't leave me alone. I think it must have worked because I didn't have to rip out anything at all on this project this week. I was very careful when I counted and also made sure that what I was looking at was actually what I was stitching. I think once I get past this motif, it should be smooth sailing because most of the other motifs are smaller and more manageable.
