I finished the owl at the top of the piece in spite of some confusing symbols placed side by side: ( for Seaweed and ) for Light Khaki. Usually, I fall for the whole tromp d'oeill thing and end up doing some serious frogging when this sort of thing occurs. But, happily, this time I saw the problem immediately and avoided mistakes. I do wish all designers everywhere would make it a priority to avoid using deceptively similar symbols in a single chart. I am wary ever since I fell into a symbol trap while stitching Brightneedle's Ghosts and Ghoulies over one and it has been languishing ever since. I have yet to face the onerous task of frogging the error.
I am going to have a lot of fun with this piece. I enjoy Halloween themes and love the style of Primitive Needle. The designer's untimely death was a sad loss.
