Croak...Croaked

Guess who came to visit me on the weekend... Yes, that's right - The Frog! And we all know how we feel about the little bugger don't we ;o) Well, at this house I'm 'very' serious about my stitching and there are serious consequences for interrupting it. So beware! If you are a frog, this is what can happen to you -

ROFL! Can you believe that Shannon actually sent him into my house? Sabotage maybe? ;o) In truth, I really think it was my own fault for being such a tease. I would have had a picture of Stargazer for you yesterday but as you can see, that didn't happen because of a certain green amphibian. Would you believe that I had to frog ALL the stitching that I had done on her ribbon? Sniff.

Anyway, without further ado, I present the first sneak peak of my Stargazer -

I'm stitching her on 28 count Blue Clouds by Heaven Lee Creations. You may wait a bit of time for their fabric but it is SO worth it. It's been 'heaven' to work with :o)

I just can't express how much I love this project and I'm really taking my time with it. I want to put that love into every stitch. I'm not a fast stitcher or at least I don't think I am. I just might have more time than others ;o) The serenity that I see in her face is that same feeling that I want for myself but cannot seem to find. Maybe she is to become part of my journey...

Sorry Mr. Frog came to visit, that's a great frog picture you have there.

Stargazer is beautiful. Oh please, I can't add her to my stash. For now I will just have to enjoy watching you stitch her ;)

Great picture of the frog in a pot! Put the lid on, fast!

Stargazer is going to be gorgeous!!

You can keep your green friend that side of the pond :O)

Send Mr Frog over to my place...he can join the one that's already here!!!! The good news - he's just a little guy & I know I can send him along his way shortly.

I can't believe your progress in just 5 days - she's gorgeous!

Thanks for the link for the fabric...I've bookmarked it for my next BAP!

She's going to be gorgeous!!

Is Blue Clouds all blue? or does it have some other colours? The visible part is *very* pretty... I might have to order a piece!

Sorry the frogs came.

I'm so sorry the little green critter came to visit you. He is nasty! Love the pic of him in his pot of boiling water. Just what he deserves.

Stargazer is gorgeous even with the frogging. I can truly appreciate your wanting to take your time with her. I feel the same way with Love with A Capital L. As much as I want it finished because I want to hang it up, I'm going to miss. It has been through this piece I've found some personal peace and strength.

Looking forward to updates.

Lori-Ann said...

Sure hope her name doesn't have to be changed to "Frog-gazer!" rofl.

sorry... couldn't resist. That frog is cute... but I don't want it.

Glad you liked my new pattern :)

Lelia said...

LOL ...

Shannon said...

LOL I was thinking that frog was awful cute :) If I'd known I could boil him I might have kept him !

She is beeaaautiful, by the way. Keep working on her. Don't distract yourself by any other patterns.... you should definitely just stitch her until she's done.... ;)

Stargazer looks great.

That frog is evil and should learn to stay home.

Laural said...

Very pretty! The fabric is the perfect.

zoomcity said...
