I would love for you to join me (a retired senior)in my zany crafting adventures with quilting (waaaaay too much fabric); scrapbooking (will I ever catch up?); redwork; counted cross stitch; crossword puzzles; reading; and cooking.

Spring has come on tippy-toes here; one warm day, the next windy and cold!  
Our new color for May in RSC13 is Blue--but Bright blues.  

I find it difficult to distinguish the brights in my scraps; maybe because they are mostly pieces of novelty prints and have lotsa colors and blue predominant? 

AND, I want to sew up some "made" fabric I think as these scraps are small--no biggies!  

I am still sorting..you'd think I'd have a lot of blues..but not so...will post more on this as I begin to sew....

AND now here is my latest work on my cross (emphasis on cross!) stitchery:

 I was working along (minding my business--when whap, slam, alacazam!) I mis-counted>  My (free spirited) bird is one little thread too low!  How did i do this?????I counted, re-counted, got a cup of tea and sipped some, took a deep breath and counted yet again...and 

I hear the distant peeps of many "frogs" chorusing up my street and coming for a visit!  Oh, no!  I have to UNDO it.  This is a lot of hours work....and so it goes mes amies...Plus ca change, plus c'est la meme...

I leave you with the vision of me undoing all those lil' stitches.  DH thinks I should leave it there--but I will always K N O W it's there..Hmmmpfh!

  1. I'm so sorry that nasty frog paid you a visit.

  2. I know exactly what you mean. It will always bother you if you know there's something incorrect. I would have done the same thing. Frogs visiting!

  3. Bummer. I'm with your hubby and would modify it a bit by adding a line if I could. Good luck with the frogging and hopefully the counting goes better the next time.

  4. Unstitching is no fun at all. Who is to say your little fellow can't be a bit different from the pattern? Maybe there is a way to fix it without undoing all your hard work.

  5. Been there. Done that. Feel your pain.
