Frogging my project

I've been working my way through the book "Little Bead Boxes" by Julia S. Pretl.
I'm attaching photos of the first 2 boxes I made.  They still need feet and a finial.

The 3rd box I'm now working on has a pattern that is much more detailed.
I was almost finished and took a good look at the little box and noticed I had a flaw in the pattern that was TOO obvious for me to ignore and be comfortable with.

I just ripped out at least 5 HOURS worth of bead stitching!! UGH. But I couldn't let it stay.  It would have bothered me FOREVER.

Lesson learned - keep a close eye on your pattern while your working. :(
