It’s already the end of the first week of January and I was hoping to have more of my Santa canvas done by now. But the holidays kinda’ got in the way. And yesterday, I frogged all of Mardi Gras Santa’s crown, including the beads that I’d lassoed in place. (EEK!) You see, it just didn’t look like I pictured it in my mind’s eye. I’m the first to admit that I make plenty of mistakes. And I don’t pretend to know everything, so I’m sharing this picture of Santa’s crown in the “rip it” stage…
I hope it helps to know that you’re not alone when it comes to frogging! 😉
We all know that frogs say “ribbit, ribbit”, right?
And as stitchers, we sometimes find ourselves ripping out what we stitched, don’t we?
That’s where the term “frogging” came from – as stitchers, we “rip it, rip it”. (Teehee!!)
I’ll re-stitch Mardi Gras Santa’s crown this weekend – and I hope to have even more to share with you next week.
I hope this helps you keep up with what’s posted where and when you can find it…
Why? Because that’s when I’ll be hosting the Needlepoint Success Challenge™! I’ll share more info next week, so be sure and check back with me. And tell your friends! It’s absolutely FREE!! (Who doesn’t love free, right?) 🙂
Other fun things happening in January include my visit with Melissa on the Pointing Out Podcast on January 16th. (I’ll have to find out what time, so we can watch it together!)
And I have another column in Needlepoint Now – all about the rice stitch and different ways you can use it on your projects. Issues are winging their way to subscribers as I’m typing this. 🙂

Alrighty, that’s all for now, my friend. Have a terrific rest of your week and I’ll see you again soon.
Until then, happy stitching…
