A frog for a little princess

I had done the stitching for this card some time ago. It was a little kit from a cross stitch magazine. I can't remember which one, it was so long ago.

Today I made it into a card and thought I would send it to B with her goodies.

I made a start on my final task for this month. On the Yahoo Hand Embroidery group, the autumn challenge was to stitch some herbs. There was a choice of eight in total.

Today, I printed them all off, traced them, then flipped them over to transfer onto fabric for stitching. Tugger thought he could help by sitting on the traced images, right on top of the hand that was holding everything into place. Twice I had to call the boys in to take him off.

As it was too dark when I finished transfering the images onto the fabric. I have decided to wait until tomorrow to choose the colours. If I get a chance tonight, I'll start J's jumper as I am not sure how much time I will get next month. I have finally decided that December will be the month to get out the paintbrushes and do some decorating.
