Here is my August TUSAL:
You see these guys?
|FROGS ! ! !|
They love Deep Peace soooo much, that they have decided to live here permanently!
Here is my progress (though you could hardly call it that)!
I have officially spent more time frogging this than I have stitching it! AGGGHH!
You would never know it from this rather innocuous looking picture, but a great deal of drama has played out on this little piece of linen! I was further along. I even had one of the forget-me-nots partially finished, but it all had to go. I had all kinds of problems with the stem. It definitely looks a little different than the picture. Something in there has gone very wrong, but I will be darned if I can find out where it went off the track. Also, I think mine is a little wider than the directions say it should be. Also I don't particularly like the dramatic differences in the green of the stem and leaves. I would prefer it to be a more subtle change in color. I refrained from frogging it though because I have had enough of that!
This was giving me such fits! I was very frustrated. That, combined with my insomnia induced jumpy eyes, I decided to take a break.
I always keep one of my easy little projects nearby for just such a situation.
I pulled out The Most Wasted Day, and finished it!
|The Most Wasted Day - Erica Wilson 1972|
I know, it's a silly little thing, but I love the crayola colors!
Well, I can't say that I have particularly enjoyed our summer weather this year, but atleast my Clivia has enjoyed the humidity. I was so pleased that it bloomed. Last year it didn't bloom at all. In fact it has been almost 2 years since I got a bloom. When they do bloom however, they are quite spectacular.
I will leave you with this tropical picture:
Happy stitching everyone!
