"Frogging" or "to Frog" refers to pulling stitches out of a project when we make a mistake. The stitches are pulled out one by one until we get to the point where we can stitch the area again, hopefully doing it correctly the second time. The term comes from the "rip it . . . rip it" sound of the thread pulling out of the fabric.
W.I.P. "Work In Progress" These are the projects that we are currently working on or are in our active stitching rotation.
U.F.O - "Un-Finished Object" This is a fairly common term to most stitchers and brings to mind those projects we started, throught we would love, and for some reason were put aside for weeks, months, and even years. It's a fitting term when we run across these projects in boxes and drawers and some truly appear to be "Unidentified Foreign Objects"! Stitchers love to compare notes to see who has the most UFO's.
Some times there is a fine line between a WIP and a UFO. My husband (excuse me for picking on you again) likes to call any project that isn't finished a UFO. I can become very indignant, informing him that a particular project is a WIP, not a UFO. However, for some reason, I have yet to explain the difference to his satisfaction. He says it's either finished or it's not. I think we stitchers all know exactly which of our projects are WIP's and which are UFO's so who care what somebody else thinks!
