I don't like the look of my stitching or the beads in the snowman. I'll probably re-stitch it.

I decided not to re-stitch the snowman, so I continued on. I'm not happy with the beads though. They look so small in the squares.

READ INSTRUCTIONS! ugh! So, I didn't read the instructions thoroughly & all along I've been VERY unhappy with the beads. I kept thinking they looked so small for the squares. So, as I was looking in the 'instructions' for info on the backstitching for the eyebrows, I discovered I was supposed to use 2 beads not 1 bead in each square. Lightbulb moment --- no wonder the beads look so small for the squares. ugh! So, I had to frog all the beading & start over.

Ok...here's my progress after I frogged all...yep, ALL the beads & re-stitch many of them. Looks a whole lot better & I'm a lot happier now!
