A Visit from the Frogs

You would think with my internet being down for 2 days I would get a lot of stitching done....Oh no not this time. The frogs decided it was time to come out and attack my stitching.


AQC 1-26
I was doing the motif where page 1, 2, 4 and 5 all come together and it shouldn't have taken long to do but the frogs didn't like that section and I spent more time froggin' than stitching. I finally managed to get it finished and finally everything matched up correctly. Now on to finishing page 2.



Mill Hill Wild Life - Frog
To make the frogs happy while I was so frustrated with ACQ I decided to start this kit I got for my birthday. Things started out well and I quickly got the right side stitched. Got the left side almost done and found a BIG goof in my counting.....so more froggn' and restitching. It felt really strange to stitch on Aida again but was a nice break from the 36 count linen.
The froggies are now back in the bathroom with a new supply of party food so maybe they will leave me alone for a while.
The birthday celebration continues.......I did some online shopping with my Gift Certificates and had a great time. In the next few days I will be receiving some really fun things and will share what S.E.X. I got when it arrives. Friday Tracy is taking me to the Strip to see (and take pictures) of the Chinese New Year display at the Belliago, to dinner and then who knows what. I'm really looking forward to another Date Night.
Time now to get back to trying to catching up on my emails and get a little more done on AQC before Pansy Sampler SAL tomorrow.
Until Next Time....Happy stitching

Sorry about the frogs. Send them outside to swim with all of the rain you've been having!

Glad you took control and sent them packing! Your Quaker piece looks great. Looking forward to seeing what you purchased!

WOW! AQC is looking awesome. Sorry to hear about the frogs.

Froggies should be in the stitching picture, not causing the distress in the picture. Banish those rascals to the ponds outside! Regardless, AQC is lovely and I love the new start. :)

AQC is lovely and you are much to kind to the froggies. Looking forward to drooling over your stash and enjoy your outing to the Bellagio, the rest of us will just dream about it.

Lovely work - that Quaker sampler is gorgeous.

Beautiful stitching Rene. I hope the frogs stay away from your stitching from now on.
Happy belated birthday :-)

The frogs are no match for the "mistress of stitching" :)

Back, froggies, back! Froggies or no, you've done some beautiful work.

Those darn frogs! Sorry to hear they have been plaguing. Stitching is still looking good of course and hopefully the frogs will stay away for awhile now.

Awww....that's not nice of those froggies. Hopefully they stay away from now on.
Your Quaker Christmas looks lovely
