What Was I Thinking?


Now I have been in a stash clearing mode since last fall. And I've been really good about not buying too much more stash. Okay, I've bought some threads and fabric but they've been for specific projects so I'm not really sure they count. And I haven't bought a kit in... well, I don't remember the last time. But I was in Hobby Lobby today getting some quilt batting when I decided to head to the cross stitch department to check out what they had. It wasn't much and I was sort of disappointed in their selection. I passed the kits and was tempted by one but not enough to buy it. I wandered around for a few minutes and as I walked past the kits again, one just jumped off its hook and fell right into my hands. I don't know why but these little frogs just appealed to me and I had to bring them home. The thread in the kit is even presorted. As long as it's big enough, I'll probably use the fabric in the kit. I'm too cheap to throw it out. But it's mine and I'm now the proud ower of a herd? (flock? gaggle?) of frogs.

According to Webster's New Dictionary and Thesaurus, Concise edition,it's an army of frogs.
And of course, I hope you never have to frog your frogs - lol!
