The Little Frog...

 The Frog...design by Gary Clarke

How hard could it be to stitch up a little Frog ?
He is only 2.5in. x 2in. (6.35cm x 5.08cm)

Much of the sewing is a simple Running stitch.
He is sewn on Organza, and for as simple as he appears, 
it takes a lot of thinking before you make each stitch.

A small group of us are meeting about 3-4 times in the Month of May... 
each of us are working on a tiny little Frog ! 

The design is from Gary Clarke.


The fabric is Organza and it is very sheer.
Some of the stitches are on the back...
they just look like they are on the front, because of the sheer fabric.

Every stitch has to be calculated...
no crossovers, no unsightly knots...everything shows !

He will be cute as a button when finished, but for now, I see mistake after mistake... and it seems each week I am wondering if I should start over.

This little Frog has humbled me.
I am learning. ;)

Happy Friday...
