IHSW and TITUS TUSAL

Okay, I'm making this a short one.  Don't forget to vote on my poll! If you want to take a look at the designs I want to stitch, read the post from friday :D

The Frog Prince visited AGAIN!! I'm telling ya!! He can get the heck outta here!!

KICKS FROG

I stitched on Jane and I may have to frog out the top left flower because the diagonal green border that I still have to stitch, will be too close to the flower, which will make it look really OFF CENTER.  SIGH

Here she is all nicely ironed!!!

The upper left border flower is up one stitch :(
This is what I think of you Frog Prince.................Take that :P
And TAKE THIS!

Okay I feel better now!!!

Here's my Titus with my TUSAL threads.  Got loads in there this month from all the projects I've been doing.  Some of last month's threads are in there too.
He's such a good little model!! I tried taking out the threads and putting them on his head, but he starting eating them, so I stopped him and stuck them back in the jar.  He batted at the threads seconds after the second photo was taken. 

So although I stitched a lot Friday, I didn't stitch too much Saturday/Sunday since I had to be outside to enjoy the last bit of nice weather we had.  Now it's back to rain...blech! I visited my Nana on Sunday and she got some lovely orchids for Mother's Day.  I just had to take a photo.  That's St. Patrick in the background.  She is Irish!


I hope to get more stuff done this week.  I'm currently trying to get my Knotgarden fabric on my hand made scrolls, which are a bit wonky. Hopefully it'll work!!! I'll also check out everyone's TUSAL and IHSW posts soon!!!


Hugs from Titus and me!

You know, I ooooh and ahhhhhh every time I see your Titus. He's just sooooooo gorgeous. Lovely TUSAL. I had a visit from the frog too, and for the same reason. I put something in the wrong place. Luckily, it was only about fifty stitches, so nbd. Grats on your progress (the parts you don't have to rip out). The orchids are lovely. Love the animal pics. They're darling!! And be careful kicking the frog. He likes abuse. It makes him stick around longer!!

Joysze said...

Well, stop calling him a Prince and he might actually go away. ;) HAHAHAHAH!!!!

Jane is looking so gorgeous, Annie. Hmm... I blew up the picture and I'd say leave the frogging for now. When the piece is done, I don't think you'd be able to tell it's off by a square.

Awwww.. Titus..... *hugs Titus and sneezes* LOL!

HMBW!!!!!!!!!

Melissa said...

Oh, that was very very funny about giving the *raspberry* to the frog! I laughed out loud!

Jane is looking sooooo pretty!

Glad you got in a bit of nice weather. Well, we need the rain. I just hope it doesn't stay too long!

Take care!

Shirlee said...

Jane is looking lovely! Another chart I may be influenced to purchase ... lol!

Nurdan said...

Your sampler looks very beautiful. I do like animal photos like those. Even more, it is obvious how Titus likes to be around you.

Thanks for sharing.

Margaret said...

lol! I had to laugh at all the raspberries the frog is getting from your house. lol! So funny! Love Jane, of course. So pretty!!! Titus is a great model for your ORTs. He's so fluffy and pretty!

EvalinaMaria said...

Sorry about frogging, stitching looks lovely!

Evalina, This and that...

Jane looks lovely. That frog really loves you - are you sure that you arent making him feel too welcome when he visits!! Although after all those tongues poking out at him I hope he has got the hint & leaves you alone now! ;0). Titus is so good - love your TUSAL photo.

tiffstitch said...

Sorry to hear about the frog. :( Hope it doesn't take too much work to fix. And my cat loves eating my ORTs too.. I don't dare keep a TUSAL jar.

Deb said...

Your post cracks me up with all those tongues!

I think that your sampler looks wonderful. Do you really think that it will look off centered given the whole piece. The sampler that I'm stitching on has a flower rather like that off center. It drove me nuts until I realized that hows the stitcher did it. Perhaps you could just think of it in those terms and not frog it.

valerie said...

Oh that darn frog! Make sure you picked him to the curb hard so he doesn't come back! You are too funny! I think the frog has been properly dissed now. Jane is looking great though. I'm glad you had some time to stitch...the rain makes it so cozy to stay in.

Veronica said...

:D Thank you so much for the pic. She's gorgeous! Sorry to hear about the frogs though :( Nice job in sticking your tongue out at it :P

Hehe... I see Titus is guarding your TUSAL jar. I haven't posted mine yet. Aiks! Having too much fun stitching. LOL!

Hugs,
Veronica.

I saw your blog at Lois and came to take a peek! Cute blog! That's a beautiful sampler you are working on - will look stunning framed and hung on your wall! I saw in an earlier post you did a freebie from Threadwork Primitives I have that freebie also and I love - love the way you finished it - fabulous! Such a cute blog - will definately come back for another peek soon!

Dani - tkdchick said...

Sorry to hear you had a case of the frogs, I'll gvie them a good solid jumping reverse kick for you!

Kaisievic said...

That orchid is amazing! I managed to kick the Frog Prince right out of my house - fingers crossed. I only had to stitch the same section - FOUR TIMES! Good luck to you.

Jane looks great, even with the frog infestation. I love your frog "salute!"
Binx would have eaten all those orts, Titus seems daintier.
Love the orchid.

Vickie said...

I hope your Knotgarden prep work goes well. Funny little critters sticking out their tongues. :) Oh Titus, you are so beautiful, no wonder you are a model. ;)

Carol said...

No! Not another visit from that pesky frog!! I hope he gets the idea from all those stuck-out tongues that he is just not welcome at your place any longer :)

Titus is so pretty, Anne!

Kathy Ellen said...

Jane is really coming along beautifully, but so sorry to hear that the 'Frog Prince' felt the need to jump into the middle of your work! How nasty of him:) Love those furry friends expressing their indignation too!

As always, Titus is the perfect model for your TUSAL! Blessings!
