Hopping along ...

The Mola is getting a bit of action.

Luckily, the butterfly is hiding behind the flowers over on the sofa. It might be a bit too big for the frog anyway.

I am thinking of using this leaf as a pattern since it seems to fit the area.

My nest challenge is deciding between applique and reverse-applique to decorate the frog.

And, maybe the frog needs a target like a bee ... but I would rather have him work on eliminating the swarms of mosquitoes encouraged by Sunday's rain.

Over the weekend I did a bit of piecing and it was a refreshing change. I am looking forward to the time I can add some needlework. . .

And watching Queenie's blog for possible stitches that might add to the design ... and be easy enough for me to figure out.


  1. Ha, ha! Most embroidery stitches are not that difficult, and they certainly won't bite you! Mola is an excellent place to add a few details with embroidery stitches.
    Your frog is looking fine!

  2. I do love this project - the designs are so interesting and I can feel then needle and thread going in and out and forming the design bit by bit.

    I have been trying to email you, and twice now the emails come back as undeliverable - wonder what is going on.

    1. Seems as though Mr. Google is again fighting off Mr. Yahoo. I sure do wish they could learn to get along!

  3. I love the idea of adding appliqué so it is raised on the frog, to give the piece more texture and movement.


  4. Combining mola and embroidery sounds like a great idea. I haven't done any mola but your sun is enticing me to try!

  5. Your frog is hopping along nicely.
