Wow, reality must have been off watching football or something because I actually made some progress! No before shots, but the fact that it looks like this now
is impressive. I started the weekend with the top five rows and the sky in front of the boat complete. (to the dark blue line) Now you can tell there’s a boat! The bottom is basically one color, except for the white caps and other random shades of blue.
I thought I’d include a couple of late pictures of things I had finished. First is the piece I sent to Momuboocrea Island for our Santa/Christmas exchange.
There was a hanger on it when it left. I just took this picture before I figured out what it would be.
Then there’s Reindeer Yoshi.
He’s a scamp. I stitched it, I washed it – it bled. Which basically left me with only one thing to do. Pre rinse the thread and stitch it again. Version two actually got sewn together and hung on the tree. After Christmas, some clever soul (who shall remain nameless) decided to iron out the wrinkles before finally stuffing and sewing it closed. Guess what happened? Spots! Sigh. I still have to sew it closed but I’m beginning to think it looks good flat.

Happy stitching World.
