the slow stitcher

Whale House done, on to Bike Ride.

I love how quickly Summer Snapperland is coming along! In a jiffy, I’ve completed Whale House. Okay, so I haven’t longstitched the whale’s eyes and mouth because I don’t have the Onyx thread it calls for but you wouldn’t notice because of the colour anyway. But really, look how fast it’s gotten done! I started on the second block, Bike Ride last night, but haven’t gotten anything done today because I’ve been nursing a migraine since we came back from church. A trip to the reflexology centre seems to have taken care of it, so maybe I’ll get a few more stitches in tonight before bedtime. Here are my progress pictures.

Whale House done, now it's on to Bike Ride.

I have to say, the crabs in this design are my absolute favourite. Look how cute the first little crab is! There’s another in Bike Ride, and I can’t wait to get him stitched up too. Love crabs! In fact, love ’em so much, I’ve a dinner appointment tomorrow with a group of girlfriends to eat ’em! LOL.

I love Mr Crabby.

I’ll be putting this project aside after I finish Bike Ride to pay attention to the two biscornu exchanges I have to get sent out in the next week or so. After that, it’ll be full steam ahead cos’ I really want to get this done and framed and up on the wall somewhere in our home ASAP.
