Frustration with a capital "F"

Ever spend the whole afternoon stitching away and spend the whole evening ripping it back out? I guess the prerequisite for counted cross stitch is the ability to count, being the daughter of a math teacher, that really shouldn't be such a big issue, especially on such a straight forward pattern as the "Cat Lessons", but oh no I have to make it complicated, and add a few stitches here, one up there to just mess it  up. Well the picture of my last progress plus a line above is no more, I need to go back to retreat to get to where I was when I came home....aaarrrrgggghhhhh! Big time frustration.

we have all been there, just take a deep breath and count to ten. See you tonight! Maybe we will have to go back to the lake for the day just to refresh our memory!!!

see maybe that glass of wine would have helped. Apparently this happens all the time!

Kerry-well how can I count to ten when I can even count three or four across lol.
Jayne-well at least then it would have made sense and I would have something to blame it on, now I am just plain incapable lol

Sounds about like how I work! I swear sometimes I spend more time ripping out than any thin else!

You see, that's why I don't even attempt that kind of work. The whole thing would end up thrown against the wall. I have endless patience with animals, not so much with people and things.

It's probably as bad as losing your place on a hooked rug! ARGH!
