Wipocalyplse October

I've made pretty big progress on 1900 ABC this week.  Thankfully the Sticklounge group I'm stitching it with is pretty good incentive to keep going.  Otherwise, I probably would have never attempted something this big.  Never mind that I really enjoy stitching my HAED.

Anyway, the last time I posted, you saw page 16.  Well, Sunday night, I finished page 17 and tonight I've finished page 18 and the third row.  Can I get a whoo hoo from the audience please??!!  So, now, I'm going to go pull out page 19 and get started!

page 18

Meari asked if I stitch in had on my last Deep Blue Sea post.  I don't.  I actually use q-snaps.  I do pad the Delicas when the snaps go over them, but I've yet to break a bead.  **knock on wood**  My fabric does get all wrinkly from being stuffed under my q-snap covers.

When frogs attack!

So, last time we talked, I was still in the middle of part 7 of Deep Blue Sea.  Monday, at work I started on the coral.  Would you believe I can't count?  I was one stitch off the bottom.  Missed counting the row on top of the rhodes stitches.  So, I frogged it all and put Deep Blue Sea into time out for a bit.  Then out came 1900 ABC.  Tonight I finished page 16.  Page 17 isn't too big so hopefully, you'll see me back in a day or so with an update!

Hermit time!

This weekend was the International Hermit and Stitch Weekend (IHSW).  I got some stitching done yesterday and lots done today.  I've got the frame and the squid  done on part 7.  Hopefully in a day or two, or three I'll be able to get the coral (I think it's coral?) and all the little fish done on part 7 of Deep Blue Sea before I totally burn out on it.  

See you in a few days!

More Window

I've just finished another page of Window I.  There's just two more pages to go.  That last page is going to be killer though. lol!

Tomorrow, I think I'll have Deep Blue Sea back on the q-snaps for part 7.

Night all!

Deep Blue Sea and Webshots

I've just finished part 6 of Deep Blue Sea.  I love how bright and happy it is on black but those fish are going to drive me crazy with all the color changes!!

I'm going to assume that everybody now knows that Webshots is going away??  I've downloaded my pictures that I had on their site and I'm working on renaming them so I know what part of what each picture is and when the picture was taken but it is such a pain!  It would have been much nicer of Webshots to keep all the information included with the pictures instead of renaming them as a string of numbers.

Deep Blue Sea update

I've got to move the qsnaps so I thought this was a good time to share a picture of Deep Blue Sea.  The top of part 6 is done so I'm moving down to stitch the sea weed along the base of this part then, the plant and fish.  Hopefully, I'll be back soon with this part finished.
