I Was a Bad Girl

I told myself I wasn't going to start anything new until more progress was made on Maddie's stocking and the 2 Halloween projects but I couldn't help myself when I got the JCS Halloween Issue. This just called to me to stitch it (and I'm sure you aren't surprised) .....

"Fraidy Frog" by Just Nan from JCS Halloween Issue
Stitched on 32 count Lavender Linen
with "sassy strings" and DMC
I did make a couple of changes in the colors. I used a verigated purple and orange in the border and didn't add the backstitching to it. I also used the same orange varigated in the pumpkin. I finished it as a little pillow (only 2x2 inches) and it now hangs by my desk.
Until Next Time....Happy Stitching

That frog sure would scare the crap out of me with those big ol' bug eyes. Very adorable finish, Rene.

Very cute! I also looked over at your list of 2009 finishes and now feel like a real underachiever...

Awesome! I was just looking at this one the other day when I got the magazine and thinking... that has to go near the top of the list for getting stitched! :)

Adorable finish - at least when you're bad, you start AND finish - now that's the key!
