I finished up the Sea Serpent!
I put in all the backstitching and added buttons and a charm from stash.
I like how the whipped backstitch looks.
I think he would look good as the front of a tote or zippered bag of some sort. I have to think about this.
Then I really wanted to finish Lindy Mouse's House. I am almost done.
I have the little mouse and date to do and maybe my initials. Oh, yeah, I have beads and charms to put on but I'm waiting until the end to do that. I'm so close to being done. I was watching "The Roosevelts" as I stitched this and now that's what I think of when I see it.
Finishing two projects presents the tantalizing idea of starting something new. Or even a couple of new things. I've got several things in mind. I'd like to work on Jenny Adin-Christie's Butterfly pin. I want to get going on the Autumn Casket Keepsakes. I'd love to start Fair Maiden's Work Bag and/or the Attic's Jackie kit. My goal this year was Mistress L's Band Sampler so I should work on that too. Decisions!?! There are a hundred other possibilities too. It's a lovely dilemma.
