Frog RR Piece FINISHED!!!

Hello Everyone!

I'm so happy to have another piece finished!!!

Remember this lil guy???


Well he's all done! I finished him last night!

Here he is ...


He is part of a series called Frog Occasions. The other three designs in the RR piece are all from the same series. However, Herbert here is a lil different than the others. I asked my husband several times if he thought that Herbert went with the other three, and he said he does. I hadn't realized how many times I had asked that same question of my husband until last night. He told me, "you've asked me that same question several times, and several times I've told you, yes he goes with them great!" LOL!!!

Here is the finished RR piece that will soon be on its way back to its owner!


What do you think? Does he go well with the others? Or does he seem like the oddball frog? I really hope that this RR piece's owner likes it when she receives it.

My husband and I were talking last night about RR pieces and about the big space between all four designs. It just seems like a lot of empty space to leave blank. My husband's idea is to get or cut a mat so they can all be in the same frame but the mat has four holes for each design. Those of you that have been in RRs ... what do you do with your finished RR pieces when you receive them? Do you frame them as is? Do you add a mat? Do you add some extra stitching to the whole piece to fill in the empty spaces? I am very interested in hearing your feedback on this.

So on to the next and final piece of this RR. The (unfortunately dreaded) angel.

Remember her?


Well this is what she will look like all finished, with the exception the pattern calls for some fuzzy specialty floss in the white of her top and the outer edge of gold. This is someone else's finished piece that I found online in order to find a picture of what this piece should mostly look like when finished.

Here are my 2 progress pictures of her so far ...



It doesn't look like there is much left to do but at the same time there is still much to do. All four specialty flosses/threads still plus regular stitching and some bead work. As pretty as this piece is, for some reason, I don't know why, I just don't enjoy working on it. This is one piece I will be very happy to be finished with.

Wow! Such a long post today! I hope you all are enjoying my blog. I certainly enjoy all those that visit and read my blog. And especially enjoy the kind and friendly comments that some of you leave! :~) Thanks to all of you! :~)

I hope you all are doing well and Happy Stitching!!!

Until Next Time,
♥ Margie ♥
