Tropical Fruits Update, Clips

I think there's some progress enough to show you in my Tropical Fruits piece, so here it is:
Excuse it for being dirty and all those fold marks.  I got sweaty hands so no matter what I do, all my WIPs got dirty one way or another.  Anyway, as soon as I finish it, I will immediately wash it.

Those of you who have been with me since I started blogging know that I don't use hoops or scroll frames, I just stitched in hand.  That's why clips are very important to me in stitching.  In my post here, I've shown you how I use the clips and also have shown you my clips.

Then sometime two weeks ago, I happen to see these clips from our local bookstore and bought:
Ice Cream
Snails.  I hope my progress won't be very slow when I will use these clips, LOL!

Frogs. I hope Mr. Frog won't visit these friends of his when I use these.
My favorite among all the clips:  BEES
Here's how I use them on my Tropical Fruits:
Front view
Back view
That's all for now folks.  Have a great week ahead.  Take care always!
