Thank you everyone for the input on a color choice for the words on Frogging Around. Between the comments on the blog entry and the answers I got on the forum I made my choice. I went with the variegated pinks/corals and last night I stitched the word "Away" that goes right next to the frog (on his left side). It looks great! The letters stand out very well and the colors make me think of the flowers on lilypads. I will try to get a picture up tonight or tomorrow. Thank you all so much! Your input really helped me find something that would work!
Lee from Lake Stitcher has restarted the SBQ (Stitcher's Blogging Questions) and hopes to post a new question every month. This month's question is as follows: (copied from her blog)
"Suppose we say that there are two types of stitchers.
There are those who enjoy the “process” of stitching. They stitch for stitching’s sake and if something gets finished, so much the better, but it’s not necessarily the end goal. Primarily, it’s the application of needle and thread to cloth that makes them happiest.
Then there are those who are “project” stitchers. They move steadily through their projects, certainly enjoying their stitching time, but finding their greatest joy in the completed stitching.
If you had to pick one to describe yourself, which type of stitcher would you be? I imagine that we could all say that we fall somewhere in between, but really think hard about this and try to pick just one. And once you’ve decided whether you’re a Process or Project stitcher, tell us if your recognize that approach in other parts of your life."
I would love to say I am both because I know there are projects that I have done just because I loved the project itself, and there are some where I enjoyed the process of stitching. However, thinking back I think I have to say I am more of a project stitcher. I do enjoy the process, but I am drawn to pieces based on how they look. I enjoy many different types/styles of designs also, some that do not seem to go together and have prompted comments such as "I love looking at your projects because you have such a wide variety of styles!" and "I love looking at your work because you can't be easily pigeonholed on style". So yeah, I think I am mostly a project stitcher.
Thank you Lee, for starting up the SBQ again!
