While working on the Montenegrin bands these past several weeks, I've learned how to see and count the stitches. But even though you all are my stitchy friends, you're not really sitting with me and chatting while we all work on our projects, are you? So I thought it might be helpful to post a marked-up and more detailed picture about the flower the frog decided to make his home in. I do not have the control over my current version of PSP as the one I had years ago, but hopefully the bright colors will work. I also cropped out the middle of the photo so it would be easier to compare the two flowers.
The bright green - though sloppy - arrows point to the first line that I stitched on the right side flower and the corresponding line on the left (correct!) one. The pinkish-purple lines are drawn on top of the vertical stitch (uh ... well, it would be vertical if the line of stitching were running left to right ... in this section it's actually horizontal, isn't it?) that is what I count to know how many stitches I've done.
Ugh - I have no clue if there's special terminology for Montenegrin stitch, but I think there ought to be!
Anyway, if you were to count the pinkish-purple lines, you'd see there are 13 in the flower on the left and 14 in the one on the right - the reason for my angsting last evening.
But (yay!) I was able to snipsnipsnip the stuff that was in the wrong place and then unstitch about half an inch of thread on each side of the lower part that had to be removed - yay! Maybe I'll boot out that frog and be able to finish this flower after all!
Hope all your stitching this week goes forwards!
