Tree Frog

My hand is feeling much better today! Which means I had a pretty good stitching day. :) I finished up this little frog from Funk & Weber Designs. I stitched this little froggie one over one on some of my own hand dyed fabric. Mac totally loves it! He asked me if I would stay up extra late and finish it into his box. I told him I would have loved to but I didn't have the "perfect" fabric to line the box with yet. After he looked through my fabric stash he agreed that I didn't have anything that would look good with it. He did make me promise that he could go with to pick out the fabric.


Jen FW-I would be happy to send you a picture of the Tree Frog when I get him finished. :) I really enjoyed stitching this one up and I plan to stitch the other critters that go with him!

To answer some of your questions on my letter ordeal with Mac....Sadly, the school he goes to is a somewhat large school so the one school nurse for the hundreds of students doesn't get to know the children one on one. The paper that gets sent home has to be signed by a doctor/audiologist and returned to the school within 60 days. Since he has had a history of ear problems Dr. L and I both agree that it is best to have his hearing checked yearly just to be on the safe side. However, sometimes the school will test twice a year and that is when it gets messy because he has just had one a couple months previous and they usually want me to have another test ran to make sure. I know that they do this to make sure the child is receiving all the help they need but I don't see it necessary to have an ear exam twice a year when there are no hearing problems. I have asked his teachers repeatedly if he notices Mac not hearing things, etc. and his response has always been that he has no hearing problems in class. While no one notices any problems it does make me feel better to have him tested and no for sure that all is okay. While I complain about the running back and forth that it involves I have always been grateful that each time the result have came back normal.

As for my week it is gonna be a busy one! I still need to do my shopping for Thanksgiving dinner. Once that is over then it is time to start baking for Christmas. :) I love this time of year because of all the baking I get to do.

I hope everyone had a great day!

The little frog came out great I can see why your son is so excited about it. It will be fun for you two to find the fabric together. Congrats and enjoy.

The frog is gorgeous, Mac will love it. It must be annoying for you to get these letters from the school every year.
I haven't forgotten your postcard, received your email and will let you know when I post the postcard.

What is the name of the pattern where this gorgoeous tree frog came from. I absolutely love it and would love to stitch it for my son. I am sure that he will love it as much as your son does.

How great that Mac wants to shop with you for the fabric! It's great to witness your relationship with him and his appreciation of our craft. I'm sure you have lots of them, but it's a nice shared moment to glimpse. So thanks!
