Frogging Frogs

Lizzie Kate's Boo Club is moving right along. I got the Spiders and Eek! blocks done this week. I love those little spiders, especially the little legs for some reason. Once the buttons are added there will be two more spiders and the frog will have eyes. Speaking of frogs, that frog was something else, I swear I stitched and re-stitched the right side of his body at least 4 times! There were either not enough stitches, too many stitches or something wasn't in the right place! lol The next block is Creppy, with a little owl sitting in a tree over a headstone.

Spiders & Eek!

The first 5 blocks, Spooky, Treats, Black Cat, Spiders & Eek!

While going through a box of framed pictures, I came across this piece. It's a Dimesnions kit called "A Year of Events" that I stitched in the Spring of 2009. I'm a sucker for monthly samplers and I really liked this one because of the bright colors. The subtle color differences used for shading make it look really detailed, even though it was a simple stitch. I actually stretched this piece myself and it made me realize why I just pay to have pieces stretched and framed! lol

"A Year of Events"

Hope everyone has a great weekend, thanks for stopping by! Nick


  1. Awesome stitching on Boo Club! I think Creepy is my favorite block. I can't wait to see!

  2. Sometimes I think those frogs have put a hex on us, lol! Your Boo Club looks wonderful! I like the spiders too.
    You've done a great job on framing your Year of Events. I'm too chicken to try any stretching on my own.
