In the Groove

I sit here having tried to get back into a stitching groove but am failing hopelessly because my stomach just doesn't feel right. Don't know what did it, but no one else here is suffering. 

What a waste of perfectly good time. 

My inspiration for getting back in the groove is my From Mountain to Molehill. I'd show you a progress pic but I just spent 30 minutes ripping out most of my progress. Not a surprise on this piece as I am creating the color scheme as I go. With each block I've been drawing a diagram in my notebook and noting what I'd like in each area. I did make some major decisions on this yesterday and then dove headfirst to the second square. And then right away started having misgivings. 

Finished the first part of area 4 and decided to move on to area 7 to see how these two triangles were going to work together. Finished area 7 earlier today and then decided it all had to come out. If I feel better later, I'll make a new attempt. If not, then tomorrow. 

I'm struggling to catch up on this piece. And really hate unstitching, but I'll be happier in the end.

Frogging is such a pain, but you'll enjoy the finished piece so much more by doing it the way you like best. Kudos to you!
