I think this is the first time I have cut all the beads off an animal and started over completely. I must say I am enjoying the feelings of seeing how much better these beads work. I have forgotten the several day's work that were destroyed to get to this point. Most of my reason for redoing the frog is the idea of using him in the LPCH images and I have only one of this kind. He is from the 2009 collection and to buy the whole set again would cost $70 or a lot of searching on Ebay. It was easier, for me, to cut off the beads and have the pleasure of beading this little again.
