A frog is an amphibian, which means it can live on land or in water. Baby frogs are called tadpoles, and live only swimming in the water until they grow up and can hop onto land. A frog’s tongue is long and strong and sticky, and is how they ‘catch’ their food.
F is also for frogging, something quilters don’t want to do, but find it a necessity at times. For non-quilters, this is the work coined to describe undoing stitches, as in ‘Rip-it, Rip-it’. Personally I haven’t found a good way to ‘frog’. If anybody out there has any tips for this they’d like to share, please do so! I just couldn’t resist using this word on this post.
Seriously, F is also for fondant/fabric smoother. When smoothing fabric, for pressing, for cutting, for sandwiching, a fondant smoother could be the ticket (another tip from Fons and Porter’s Love of Quilting).
I don’t actually have one, and am not enough of a baker to want to purchase one, but if you have one at home……. I actually like to smooth my fabric with my hand, and then I’m sure to feel all the little wrinkles.
Happy challenge! Blessings, Peg
