Object Number 8
Object Name: Handmade Fabric Frog
Accessioned: December 2007
Notes: Handmade for me by a very good friend as a Christmas present. I received this and some delicious homemade fudge.
Comments: This little frog has lived on my bookshelf, usually in the company of the choice few stuffed animals I still own. My friend of many years made it for me and he is made of toweling material. His cheerful smile and almost diving stance make him look both peaceful and busy at the same time. In Ireland there is only one type of frog, Rana temporaria. I think the only time I saw a live frog up close was when my cat caught one and proudly deposited it in our kitchen.
This little guy might one day get a little crown and then he can be a little frog prince.
