Sea Life

Hello blog friends. 
A rainy afternoon we had and now it's raining again, setting the mood for more stitching! Thanks so much for the kind comments on my latest finish (with my Christmas story too!)

I'm dedicating this weekend to Away We Ride, which you get to see on Halloween, hopefully that it gets done by then (such a tall order for a short stitcher). I can only tell you that I've moved on from the grays and browns for now. I'm doing Mulberry and next will be an orange hue, how exciting!

But during the work week I had two pieces on the table. My new start, which I'm rather enjoying than the second WIP. Here is the dark picture:

This is how it should look when done:
 Let me repeat that- "should look". Again, I'm planning to do some changes along the way. The booklet showcases more patterns, and there are some neat elements I really like to add on this one.
Here's the other WIP, Read Between the Lines:
 I know it looks boring, I felt bored stitching those lines too. But as much as possible, I'm trying to finish that stuff first:(
This is all for now. I hope you're all having a lovely stitchy weekend.
Thanks for visiting. Happy Stitching! 


  1. I love the Lanarte stitch! I didn't realise they do charts as well as kits.
    I really like stitching borders so I'm interested to see more of the second one!

  2. Ooooh I love that Lanarte chart!! What sweet sea themed designs.
    Have fun with your little xxx

  3. What a great Lanarte stitch , wonderful stitching.

  4. Great progress on these two pieces. Looking forward to seeing how you adapt the Sea Life design.

  5. Stitching these outlining on your second project was certainly a bit boring. But stitching the inside should be more interesting.
    Sea Life is a very beautiful project.

  6. OH, I like Sea Life. It will look great when finished. Changes and all. :)
    Nice progress on both WIPs.

  7. I think you've made beautiful progress :)
