What are you most proud of? It's silly, but I love the cute little stuffed frog I found to photograph with the boy afghan! I love the way the afghans turned out, too!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? The animals, plants, etc., are cross-stitched on an afghan stitch (tunisian stitch) square. Be sure to weave in all the ends securely for baby's safety. The squares are done separately and then crocheted together using a connect-as-you-go technique, so the only sewing is the cross-stitch. The finished size is 44-1/2" square. This is an easy pattern, available for $4.00, and is written in U.S. terms.
