Frogs

When a WiP is screaming at you to work on it, it's generally wise to take heed and listen. Ignoring it and continuing stitching on Magic Garden Sampler has landed me paltry progress.
This is because the offended WiP will throw a massive tantrum and heap frogs your way, making it a one step forward, two steps back situation.
The culprit? None other than Stella of course.
I had wanted to take a short break after finishing all the stitching before starting the beading. After all, I gotta give some love to other WiPs. My time shouldn't solely be monopolized by her, right?
Apparently she disagreed and the Frog Prince concurred with her. Who could blame him? She's as pretty as a princess. So without further ado, let the beading commence.
About time too. See how a couple of the plastic containing the beads have turned yellow? Yeah, that's how long I've had Stargazer kitted up. Luckily, the beads appeared unaffected.
Happy Stitching!

Great progress on the garden. I am sorry that the frogs were visiting, but now Stella looks amazing!! The bead colors are wonderful and are going to make her so much more lovely.

Mel said...

woohoo. bling time! :)
I can't wait to see her get all shiny.
I'm sure the beads in the plastic are fine, that's just silly plastic for you, always discolouring quickly. (like threads do)

Carla said...

Cna't wait to see her finished!!

Anne said...

AWww!! He visited you too!! He's a jerk that frog guy!! She is beautiful though :D Didn't know that the beads could turn yellow! That's crazy!! I love your Magic Garden though! Such a pretty piece. I've seen it stitched by someone else and have loved this design...been meaning to get it!

Meari said...

Sorry to hear about the froggies, Veronica. Stella looks awesome, though. Looking forward to seeing her beaded up.

I bought some opalescent fabric a couple weeks ago for Miribilia's Winter White Santa, and am going to attempt to hand-dye it a light blue. Wish me luck!

Jan said...

Stargazer is Devine. I look forward to seeing her beaded. Who designed The Maguc Garden? It's a cute stitch.

Siobhán said...

Stella is so pretty! But I love the garden piece, too--so pretty for this time of year!

Great progress on your 6 Fat Men piece, too. I'm soooo tempted to get the new L*K mystery piece--it looks cute, and I love the saying.

She looks so beautiful! That fabric is stunning and matches so beautifully with the dress. Have fun with the beading. xD

Love your other WIP too. You are right. They don't like to be neglected for too long.

The Maiden said...

Stargazer was the first project I ever stitched, cannot wait to see her beaded (love the fabric!).

Virpi said...

Both of your projects looks amazing. I admire Mirabilia's desings but have never stitched one. I do have couple of charts in my stash =D

Ewa said...

I hope those frogs have stayed away! I bet that beading is going to take a little while, but be so worth it!
