Rest in Bog
Rest in Bog
Frogs hop to meet their dead pals again in the afterlife... or is it in this life? It is not a big leap between frog spawn and demon spawn...
This design uses 19 DMC colours and requires no backstitching.
Difficulty: intermediate (due to gradients).
'R.I.B' on the tombstone is a play on the word 'ribbit' (or alternatively, it stands for 'Rest in Bog') but should you prefer 'R.I.P' instead, this is an easy adjustment. If you require instructions as to how to transform the 'B' into a 'P', please don't hesitate to reach out to me.

After finishing your embroidery, it is recommended that you carefully hand wash it with water and a gentle soap. Ironing the back gets rid of any leftover marks from an embroidery hoop. Always be careful with your fabrics: if a fabric is dyed specially, be careful washing it, and consult the person you purchased it from whether washing and ironing is indeed safe.
