UFO My Other “Ant” Rose
I was given this chart back in March of 2006. My Other “Ant” Rose is a small ( 5″ X 5″ ) project designed by Kathy Fenchel and distributed by Quail Run Designs. It was originally published in 2001. I liked it so much I kitted it and began stitching. After sorting out all the “spaghetti” and trying to begin stitching I think I discovered why I set it aside. There were two stitching mistakes. Some reverse work was necessary to get back on track. I probably put it aside when I couldn’t find the errors and never went back to it. Over the years when I have gone through my UFO’s I kept this together because I wanted to get back to it.
On the left is the photo of the finished project. Below is what I found when I pulled it out to work on. Can’t believe that I was using blue household tacks. I cleaned up the “spaghetti” and had to remove several of the counching rows as I discovered I was off with the couching stitches. Farther below is where I am today. I don’t think I will do the rose as described but will design my own rose. The “Ant” is in black beeds and looks like a spot in my photos.
