A Finish

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.


  1. Wow it's a beautiful finish
    Well done xx

  2. Great finish, love all of the colors.
    House Mouse almost done!
