Eagles & Frogs Don't Mix


Last night, I finished all the backstitching on the flag and eagle of Freedom. Woo Hoo! I also managed to get two lines of the poem done. Much to my dismay, the frog reared it's ugly head -- The chart called for 2 strands of blending filament and 1 strand of floss in an "old gold" color. I stitched part of the poem title and it looked horrible! Rip-It, Rip-It! So then I tried using just the gold floss -- just as bad! Rip-It, Rip-It! Finally I decided to use one of the blues from the flag. She scores! I'm going to do the soldier's info in that same blue color.

Congrats on your finish. That piece is so pretty. I'm anxious to see it all done and even framed. I can't let my brother see that though or he will have me doing it. He has a son who was in Army but got shot in Kuwait and a son-in-law who served two terms in Iraq and now his daughter is in Air Force. Oh yes, he'll have me doing this! Can I buy it from you and claim I stitched it? LOL! I didn't think so.

Can't believe it! You are my first ever comment! Thankyou. I am really enjoying the final stages of this piece. Since the photograph I have done quite a lot and am now in the final stages of backstitching. You seem to enjoy starting ambitious pieces too! Hope the FROG doesn't rear it's head again!
