I finally rained today. Not too much but just enough to make the frogs and toads happy. As I sit here and listen to them sing in the pond outside my window, I am reminded of one of my favorite quotes.
"Frogs do for the night what birds do for the day; they give it a voice. And the voice is a varied and stirring one that ought to be better known." -Archie Carr

It's not best picture, lighting-wise, but oh well. This is my latest progress on 25th Anniversary. Those of you who are familiar with this design will note that I have changed the ribbon color. I also decided not to use metallics in the ribbon because I didn't like how the threads were laying when the metallics were added. I still have a little bit of greenery, the tails of the ribbons, the backstitching, and then the wording left. It's going to be a wedding sampler instead of an anniversary sampler. I'm really hoping to finish this by the end of August. We shall see how well I do!
