Mr Frog and a cushion

Recently our vehicle had a flat battery, and living some distance out of town, and not having a spare vehicle to take to purchase a new tyre the call went out to the neighbour.  A quick trip into town, a battery purchased, and fitted, and yay ... a vehicle that started.  Not wishing to offer money for the kindness I decided to make a cushion.
Later in the month youngest grandson celebrates a birthday ... my other grandchildren were small when I had a busier life; this little one is the recipient of many more creative projects.  Mr Frog was fun to make ... except the stuffing of toes!  The pattern said 'use small pieces'.  It took several hours for those few words to sink in that small meant very small.
Mr Frog sits by himself!!

Pretty cushion. I can see one very happy grandson coming up when he opens up his gift. Such patience to stuff those toes and the fingers do not look much better.
