Today is Day 6 of the A to Z Blogging Challenge. In case you haven't heard of this yet, the idea is to blog (almost) every day in April, taking one day for each letter of the alphabet.
F is for Frogs
I've never really been a frog person. In fact, when I was 5 or so, I decided frogs really kind of grossed me out and scared me, and I put a "No Frogs Allowed" sign up in my bedroom window, where it stayed for a couple years until we moved. (Of course, the frogs didn't listen, but that's another story).
However, I have a friend who really loves frogs, so that is the reason I picked up the Dimensions kit Tree Frog Trio, featuring artwork by Royce B. McClure. Tree frogs I guess aren't nearly as intimidating I guess, maybe because of the pretty colors.
Anyway, knowing today's post was coming up, I actually pulled Trio out of my closet to work on, since it's one of my 10 Turtle Trot pieces. So although there hasn't been a lot of progress, there is some new stitching to show:
I'm almost done with that dark green, and then it will be onto the tweeded green (eep!) and then purple, and then other than gray shading, eyes, and backstitch Mr. Frog #1 will be done. Doesn't sound like much when you put it that way, does it?
Incidentally, I also caved last year and bought the Design Works kit called Frog Pile. Something about the bright colors in this one just called to me. I have no idea what I'm going to do with it once I finish it, since (as stated before) frogs aren't my thing. Which is perhaps why I haven't started it yet. If you notice some similarities between these two kits, you've got good eyes. The Design Works kit features art also by Royce B. McClure. An interesting fact I didn't realize until I had purchased both kits.
On to tomorrow, stitchers!
