This 2.5" square pillow was created for Princessandthebead for the Tiny Treasure swap.  The center design is 1" square, stitched on ivory wool felt with DMC cotton and metallic floss using satin and outline stitches. The cording was created using DMC floss also.  The idea for the frog came from a stain glass pattern at http://chantalstainedglass.50megs.com/2retf.html.

It's beautiful! And you made the cord as well! I can't imagine embroidering something that small.  My hands would turn into useless hams.
So glad I got to see a close up! Very, very awesome.

Thank you, aliciasjoy!  I like doing small satin stitch because it lays so nice and you don't have to worry about couching it to keep it in place.  Making the cording isn't difficult - if you have a manual or electric drill with a hook on the end.  I'd be happy to give more details if anyone's interested.
