Still Frogging Around & Thank you!

I am still working on Frogging Around and put in some more. I'm not sure if I like the threads the letters are done in or not, but I don't want to pull it out (frog) them again. Here's the latest Pic. I just finished adding the "G" in "Go" and the "F" above it.

I still think this design is cute, just didn't really want to stitch tonight, but did add those two letters then called it good. LOL

I think I know how to make those letters stand out better, backstitch them even though the chart doesn't call for it. That should help, specially if I use the same dark color that is in the variation floss. Will have to give that a try.

WOW I have been pleasantly surprised by the many many comments and how happy people were that I clicked the "Follower" thing on their blogs. If I had realized it helped the authors see who follows their blogs, I would have done it sooner. Oh well, better late than never I guess! Thank you all!


  1. Lovely colour you have chosen for the words, progress looking great.

  2. Lovely progress on mr Frog. Very cute.

  3. Oh, yes, your frog is very cute. You might like the color better when you finish stitching the letters, they can make a nice background for the frog.

  4. That picture makes me want to edit it so it says nasty words :P LOL Good job though, mom! :D

  5. I think your right, outlining the letters will make them stand out more.

  6. I see what you mean about the letters, but my first thought was that you could backstitch if you could find a dark colour to match the dark in the variegated thread - so that just might work - great minds think alike and all that. I love this design :)

  7. I like your progress on Le Frog... maybe stitching him will appease the stitching gods & keep you from having to frog on other stitching. ;) Nice design!

  8. Thank you all very much!

    That is what I am hoping for Siobhan. It certainly can't hurt. LOL

    I agree Es, great minds think alike.
    No stitching today because I really hurt and didn't sleep last night. So I am off to bed now.

  9. I really like the way he is coming along.I still think he is cute!

  10. that is a cute design but I would change the floss colour, the words do disappear but perhaps BS in a slightly darker colour will help!
