I'm definitely getting the hang of this. I find the biggest challenge of this project is that the stitches are so loose and a touch uneven. I'm used to stitching snugly, which results in a nice even stitch. But I have to say, I enjoyed this frog much more than I enjoyed the owl.
I decided to backstitch in 2 threads, and not one, as the pattern called for, and I feel the result was much bolder. I will go back and backstitch the owl with one extra thread once I am finished with the afghan. But I managed to get this adorable little fellow done in a week, which is pretty good considering I worked a lot this week and my stitching time has been severely disrupted by this. *Shakes fist at work*
Anyway, here is the little frog. Cute, no?
In other news, I've noticed there are a lot of animal lovers who stitch, so I thought I'd share my news with you. On Thursday, hubby and I adopted a little cat from the SPCA. He is 3 years old and black as night, with green eyes, and the loveliest personality. We have named him Kip.
I know I don't talk about my pets much, and I don't intend to really include them much in this blog, but since I am showing off pictures of Kip, I felt I should share a photo of Ruin. She just turned 1 last weekend.
Anyway, that's it for this week. Hopefully I will have another panel to show off for next weekend. Next up, a very cheeky looking squirrel.
