I Got a Frog and a Winner!



I just love this little frog. She is so adorable. This frog I dont mind keeping, and she is behaving very well, so far. Carissa from WI send me the frog in the Froggy Exchange. She, also, send the Mistle-Toad by Lizzie Kate in an ornament. She said this was the first time she made an ornament like this. She did a wonderful job. I would have not known it was her first if she didnt tell me. She gave me 3 purple skeins of hand-dyed threads. Thank you Carissa!

I hosted a Valentine's exchange in my ILCSing yahoo group. The exchange consisted of a finish in Valentine's or heart theme, 2 skeins of threads, and some chocolates. For Sarah, I stitched her Bee Mine By Barbra Ana. I found the pattern on Cyberstitchers.com.


I have been stitching on Cat Lessons this past week. I did not finish it for my friend's birthday. I just ran out of time. I think it will be done by the end of this weekend. I dont have much left to do.

Now for the winner of the giveaway. First, I want to thank you for all the wonderful comments of my first granny square. I had redid it with a tighter tension and the gauze was correct. I had made 14 more squares since I last post. I know it will be a beautiful afghan and I will cherish forever. Okay, the winner of my giveaway is Lesleyanne of Lesleyanne's Life of Stitches. Congratulations! Please send me your address to me. I left you a message on your blog with my email address.

Have a great stitchy weekend!
Vicky

Cute frog. What fabric are you stitching cat lessons on, is it the same grasshopper Aida you used for an earlier ornament?
