Frog Happy

This froggie was a fun one to stitch for a couple of reasons.  First, I love to stitch for family and friends.  My sister and her husband collect frogs, so when I found this freebie pattern on the Kreinik website, I knew I had to stitch it for them.  Next, I love trying something new.  As Kreinik is the go-to for specialty threads - especially sparkly ones, the pattern called for several blending filaments and a stand-alone braid to stitch with.  I hadn't used blending filaments before, so there was my something new!  So here he is: 

Frog Happy (Kreinik),
Stitched over two on 28 ct. Annabelle ice blue linen.
Completed October 2012
The plan this year is to finally finish my French sampler, Sarabande!  I prefer not to schlep it back and forth to work, where I stitch at lunchtime, so there will be other projects going on there!

Happy Stitching!


  1. The frog looks wonderful! What a great project to learn using Kreinik threads and sparkly blending filament. I'm sure they'll love to add this frog to their collection!

  2. Having the great opportunity to see this in person, the photo doesn't do it enough justice! It is gorgeous and so wonderfully sparkling. I know her sister will go bonkers when she sees it.

    Love love love it!!!!

    Now put something up for IHSW!! LOL

  3. Lovely! You made good use of the Kreinik!
