Peat and RePeat it what I say

I have heard people say they really enjoyed a certain aspect of a project or a project itself.   That is how I feel about the trees here.   They have been fun to stitch and since I am so into the instant gratification I love how fast they work up.  They also make me think of southern plantations I guess because they remind me of the cypress trees I saw in Charleston SC and all the moss.


Now I don't know if I am in love with them so much that I will enjoy frogging and restitching them.    Seems I have 3 - not one, not two, but 3 - "T"'s as a pattern symbol.   Since the color photo is only a copier photo and not a professional photo it was hard to tell.    With all the possible letters in the alphabet and possible symbol choices..... I ask why use "T" for three different fibers?!?!?   Words of wisdom: I take away from this the need to re-read the instructions and my notes when picking up a project from a class taken months ago.  The last photo on the right is the correct T that I will re-stitch the trees with.   Now I am beginning to understand why so many of the gals who have already stitched this have complained about running out of floss......

The sampler is really pretty Robin! I know what you mean about having a symbol used more than once for different colors. I have had that as well as having a symbol used that wasn't even listed with the symbols/colors list. Makes you scratch your head and ask "so what color is it"? I think sometimes the designers rush to get a chart out that they must not proofread it sometimes. But we have this "habbit" so what are we to do? LOL.

Robin, what a beautiful sampler! Lovely colors in it. Sorry about the chart hassles. I have a few charts with such similar symbols that I haven't started them yet. Stitching is supposed to be relaxing, and I usually blunder on in and don't read my chart before starting. Anyway, glad you're managing to work around it!

That is so pretty. It is a right pain when it is hard to work out the symbols.
