Learning Patience

As I ponder the frogs around my stitching nest, I find myself wishing I'd taken up yoga.  Although my potty mouth has been moderated quite a bit given the lack of progress on Virtue Outshines the Stars.  So maybe I'm maturing. Not likely. Perhaps I'm just getting too old to waste the energy swearing involves.  Whatever, I stitch, I rip, I stitch again. 

 At least, I'm adding color and new motifs.  My normal modus operandi is to stitch everything of a single color before moving on. But, for some reason, I find myself stitching more by section on this piece.
The Qeeen Stitch fest continues, but Algerian Eyes have joined the party too.
I have a couple of small things I need to stitch in the next few weeks, so if the frogs reappear, I may take that as a sign to take a break. But for now, I'm merrily stitching away and working on that virtue called patience.

  3. Great stitching! Hope the frogs stay away! I am glad to see that someone else usually stitches by color! I asked that a couple of months ago and found that method was in the minority. I am stitching by color per section on my current project because it easier to split by section to make less mistakes.
