This was to be done in two parts, and this seemed to go quite quickly. The joy was short lived, I'd read the pattern wrong, and there was no way I could adapt the pattern to make it look right. There was only one thing I could do, the scissors had to come out and every single, little stitch had to come out.
Two afternoons later, I was back to the top picture, ready to start again. Hopefully, I can do it again without any more drastic measures.
