Today was working with Frogs--
You remember that I am in the 'Crazy 15 Challenge'???
Well--I have done well===sooo far----
And today was Day 8th--
so am half way there--
But only cause I have had my 'buddy' to help me--
Mr. Henry--the most helpful frog on the block--
Is he 'not' handsome or what--
Mr Henry can even throw balls through hoops-
but what he does the best at is--
helping me 'frog' out my counted cross stitch mistakes--
When I call upon him--
he always come prepared with
best pair of glassses--
cause he knows that one has to be very careful in getting out the 'bad' threads--
and not hurting the good ones!!!!
Late last night " we" worked at removing the second attempt at stitching a robin--
in this piece-
I had won this sampler pattern on the internet some months ago--
and I had started it--twice!!!
See that large robin--she is right in the center and I always start my projects in the center--
and for what very reason, she did not want to cooperate and go in straight--
so Mr. Henry and I 'frogged' her out once again and I started with a clean slate--
I mean a blank piece of cloth--
but this time I stitched in the center line--
I have discovered that doing this to all my cloth pieces are making a 'big' difference--
in getting them started and staying straight--
So here she is for the Third time--
I even got 3 of her babies in today--and they are learning how to take a bathe in the bird bath--
Now least you think that by starting over a third time it was easy going--
I still had to call on Mr. Henry --often--
I sometimes think I put in one stitch for every two we take out!!!!
You did good today Mr. Henry--
you deserve a cold drink and a cool rest--
probably will see you tomorrow!!!!
I did get alittle basting done on this one--
the drop leaf table is working really well for doing this--
am glad I got it now--
I did get some of the snowmen out of the tote and up in the cupboard today--
do you see where I put the gift from Sunny??? and if Alice looks really close she will see her little guy on one of the shelves toooo!!!!!
Well--here we are at the end of the first full week end in the year 2012--
hope you did something special with it???
Ahhh--Miss Gracie--Mommy loves you--
you don't have to help me fight alligators or frog stitches--
I love you for who you are--a lap warming kitty!!
Who wants her food dish 'full' at all times of the day and night!!!
Hugs, Di and that Miss Gracie
