Rag Rug Re-Do!!

So, I told you all that I was thinking about ripping apart the red/yellow/orange rag rug and stitching it back up to look more like the pink and purple one, right?  This week I did just that. 

Here's what it looked like before
I wasn't crazy about the way the colors kind of step-laddered.  So after a re-do, here's what it looks like now.
I like that all the colors are in their own rounds.  Oranges are all together, yellows are all together, and reds are all together.  
I'm still having some trouble with wrinkling/curling.  If I have time I may take the last round out to fix it, but the curling is very minor.  It might be something that bugs me enough to fix it, but it might be something I can live with.  I haven't decided yet.  Part of my problem, I think, is coming at the end of the rounds where it joins.  I haven't quite gotten the hang of it yet, so there's a little bit of ridge there.  I think I also need to work on my stitch tension.  Just some things to work on for the next one!!
