Tuesdays Are My Stitchy Night

Just a quick "hit and run" post today and I am itching to head off and stitch! I haven't put needle to fabric in a week and needless to say, I am jonesing for a fix! Definitely need to get cracking on some obligation stitching. Since I haven't stitched, I have no pictures other than the sad display below. Can you see what's wrong?

Did you see it? The "after" picture is after I frogged the entire bottom border I had stitched minus one lonely leaf. The only leaf I managed to stitch correctly. I know you folks all think I'm nuts! I'm well aware and ok with it!! This project is being shelved until after I finish my obligation stitching for the month and maybe even beyond. I have a birth sampler I need to fit into the rotation (what rotation but anyways!) to get done by October. I still haven't decided what sampler to stitch up though. I am having a major mental block making a decision for this project but I have it narrowed down to three choices...erm...maybe four. Ack!

The weekend was great and busy! I eliminated my front running car because the rear window was too small and the side windows may as well have not been there. Cute design and sporty looking car but not very functional where you need it...you know...like windows and a good seat. Lots more looking around for me to do.

For those of you who stopped by yesterday, my blog was f'd! It had weird techie problems I couldn't even begin to understand but it all came down to how my blog designer had a credit card snafu with her photo-supporting account or whatever. I don't understand this stuff. All I know was that I was relieved to see my browns, blues and foggy Transamerica shot this morning. Whew! It seemingly resolved itself and I didn't have to do anything! Wow, I love that!

Thanks to everyone...new and otherwise who have been visiting and commenting. I love meeting new people and appreciate you taking the time to say hi. Hi!

That's it for me...time to work on my exchange.

Until next time...

Sorry to see the frog, but hey, at least you are done with it now and can move on to stitching again!!
Summer times always seem to be the busiest time of the year!!! I hardly had time to stitch, either!!!! I wish I can have a whole day open just to stitch!!!
Good luck with your car shopping~~ It's both a fun and a curse, isn't it?! ;-)

I love your new blog layout...snaffy! or should that be snazzy...I think I was still thinking about the "snafu" you mentioned! LOL!
Your WIP is almost there, huh?! Looking GREAT!

Look forward to seeing what birth sampler you choose!

Oooooo I hate it when that happens.

That's a lot of frogging Valerie - congratulations of completing such a horrid task!

I came to visit yesterday - such a fun look!

Froggy, froggy go away...froggy, froggy I don't want to play! Sorry. I hope that project doesn't go into the UFO hole too long - it is really nice looking and I am sure that it will be a nice finish after you take a little vacation from it. I did visit yesterday and saw the "photobucket" icon all over your blog - glad that got fixed as I like looking at the foggy wharf on your header! Glad to hear there is progres son the car decision!
Take care.

Oh, reverse stitching is the pits, isn't it? Good for you for getting it done before laying the piece aside. That's how UFOs are born.

Your blog looks GORGEOUS. Makes me yearn for a custom-designed one again.

Oh no! All the lovely border! You were so close, too. Oh well. It's better to rip it than to have to constantly look at it and see only the mistake instead of the beauty.

Oh those frogs are just awful! It is looking great though!
