It Must Be Spring

The temps have been in the low 80's and the Frogs have come out to attack my stitching. I thought I was on a good roll after working on the Monopoly board, boy was I wrong. I wanted to try to get "Good Things..." done but the frogs had a different idea for me. I was stitching away and felt like something was wrong. I don't know how I did it but when I stitched the border I was off by a mile. Out came the "stitch picker" and I took out the offending stitching and then promptly put it away for another day.




I then decided I'd work some on the LK "Christmas Flip" and it's going much better. The frogs retreated back to the bathroom when I got the "100 Ways to Cook Frog Legs" cookbook out.




Another chart completed and only 2 more to go for a finish. Unlike my normal stitching habit of switching project almost daily I am going to continue working on this until it is finished. I was thinking of making it into a Bell Pull but Tracy said he thinks he would like to see it framed so that is what we will do. I'm thinking of using a double mat with red on the inside and green as the main color and then a simple frame but we will see when I get it to the framers.
Should be a good weekend for stitching with NASCAR back this weekend after a week off and if I'm lucky may even see some rain on Sunday. I'm not holding my breath for rain but it would make a nice change.
Until Next Time....Have a Great weekend with lots of stitching time.

Rene-- where is this "100 Ways to Cook Frog Legs Book of which you speak"??? I think I need the repellent for when I get the energy back to stitch, as I am sure the frogs will have pent up energy!
