Just Call Me Lady Frogsalot

I was working on egg #3 on Folk Eggs and got done with the carrot portion.  I thought it would be fun to start on the white bunny that's sitting on the carrots.  So I was stitching along, thinking how cute this little rabbit was coming out.  I was literally on the last stitch of the bunny, and thought, "Huh, now why isn't he closer to the carrot greens?".  That's right - I stitched him in the totally wrong place.  Instead of going on with the stitching fun, I had to spend my time frogging.  For those of you who don't know, "frogging" is the term for tearing out stitches you've so carefully done.  Get it?  "Rip-it, rip-it".  Like a frog says? 
See the half-done bunny?
From the title of this post, can you tell I've been watching "Downton Abbey"?   I'd been hearing a lot of people mention it, and thought I'd see what all the hoopla was about.  Now I understand.  What a great show!  If watching a show about life in a early 20th century castle in England isn't your cup of tea (cup of tea, get it?), then just watch it for the scenery, costumes and jewelry.  Just lovely!  I think Mark should call me "Lady Cathy", but he hasn't caught on to the idea yet.


  1. Sorry about the visit from the "Frog Prince," Cathy! But, your PS eggs are looking amazing... The one you're working on now is my favorite :)

  2. Hello

    Just found your blog.

    Such a shame that you had to frog your stitching but your stitching is looking great!

  3. Well Lady Cathy sorry about the frogging you have to do but your stitching looks great! I have been reading all the comments about Downton Abbey so I have been looking for season one but so far only found season two. But I don't want to watch season two before season one.
    Happy Stitching

  4. Ugh, frogs! I hope they stay away for awhile now.

  5. Senor Frog as we call him here! Oh I do not like him at all nor does my hubby! LOL! Cute project. Thanks for visiting me!

  6. I ♥ your blog you do amazing cross stitching work! Thank you for your support!
