friday frolic frogs

This past Friday was not a very productive one for me! Instead of my Lizzie Kate, I decided to stitch on Strawberry Garden from Blackbird Designs. I really love these designs, but for some reason they always take me some time to really get into the stitching of them. Very slow starts, always!
Anyway, here's where I began;

And here's where I ended.

And then I realized that all those branches on the upper part were started in the the wrong spot and had to be re-done. Not too big a deal, just annoying. except that after re-stitching them, I saw that the bit of the over-dyed thread was way darker than any of the other bits. It looked funny, so...out came all those same stitches again. Stitch once, frog twice!

Oh well, it will get done eventually!

See you on Friday!

Lynda: I love Blackbird Designs myself I have many just not enough time in the day to stitch all I want.
I hate frogging.

It's very annoying for you, Lynda, but it is looking very pretty already! Look forward to seeing your progress. Have fun stitching it tonight!

Thank goodness that you caught your mistake earlier and didn't realize it until later :)

It looks beautiful so far. Can't wait to see more! Have a wonderful weekend :)

Oh no, Lynda - two lots of frogging - so annoying when that happens! Otherwise, looking good, though.

Oh no! When the frog comes to visit he does like to stay!! Great progress though considering the twice frogging you had to do! ;o)
