Retreat



This ugly little guy is, I guess, the guild retreat mascot. He's a frog, if you can't tell, intended to be something like a scissors holder. His original maker got fed up and went into hysterical laughter, we made him trunks from some hideous fabric from the Ugly Fabric Exchange, someone added the bandanna, someone else the fly in his mouth, and I got him this year. My contribution was the nostril piercing.

Fixing Mr. Frog was just one of the things I've been trying to do before leaving tomorrow: packing, organizing projects to take, working on a project I wanted to finish, doing laundry, etc. I'm looking forward to a couple of days of solid sewing, when I finally get there!

Mr. Frog is one of those iconic creatures that you want to take on a holiday, and photograph doing all sorts of things that you wouldn't do.

I forgot to say: Ribbit!

Have a good time at the retreat. I agree with Rian that The Frog could be like the proverbial garden gnome-photographed in every country...

Now that nose ring is quite the statement, Kay! I've finally caught up with your posts - great book recommendations - I've not read the Reginald Hill series. Have a great time at your retreat!
Cheers!

He is truly one-of-a-kind! Can't help but smile! Does he have a name?

Have a wonderful time. Several days of sewing sounds perfectly lovely. I'm sure your retreat mates are going to love Mr. Frog's latest accessory.
