” In order to be irreplaceable, one must always be different.”
– Coco Chanel –
This little froggy is the size of a large salad plate. He was born to be a planter but his destiny appears to be that of a pin cushion.
He sits very quietly next to my sewing machine and does not hop around.
Froggy, as a pin cushion, was the perfect use for a scrap of beautiful chenille that I had been saving. The chenille came from The Quilt Cottage in American Fork which is now closed. It was the most wonderful chenille that I still have ever seen. It still had pencil lines on the fabric where it had been marked and created by hand. I bought a little of each color: cream, brown and dark red.
I made a circle and filled it with poly pellets using a funnel.
I closed the round bag and pushed it into the froggy’s back.
It made a nice, puffy place to put pins.
Old fashioned things just feel nice.
