Mr X Stitch Presents: Beefranck’s Emporium – Frogs
|Share the love...||
Over at Mr X Stitch we’re blessed with the services of Beefranck, the Queen of Ironic Stitching, who curates the terrific “Emporium of Embroidered Excellence and Splendiferous Stitchery”. Each week, these posts explore themes expressed through embroidery, and they’re ace. So without further ado, I welcome you to…
Hi everybody! This week we’re jumping right into the topic: frogs.
I’ve always loved fairy tales, so the Frog Prince is the first thing I think of on this topic. Here’s a lovely pattern from Follow the White Rabbit stitched by the incredibly talented Georgia McDonald.
It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s SUPER FROG from Greeting Friends!
These frogs are in love, according to Amy Hana, but one of them looks a little bit more excited about it than the other.
Last but certainly not least, here’s an amazing redwork frog from my stitchy hero, Bascom Hogue.
I hope you enjoyed this look at our hoppy friends in hoops. See you next time!
