baby afghan update frog

Hi all, this is baby frog :) cute or what :) this is the second block and woodland baby on the afghan. I'm enjoying this project very much, although the fabric is very thick and the holes are very large which makes the stitching loose, it makes you think.. will it all fall apart when baby plays with it..so, I have knotted all the threads at the back so that wont happen, it doesn't matter if you have knots (in fact I'd recommend it) as there will be a backing on it. also I'm using 3strands of thread not 2 and 2 for the back stitch not 1 as stated in the booklet. another update soon when baby frog is finished :)

 happy stitching :)
