Late last night, I finished all the stitching and got all the Delicas sewn on.  But I had to work this morning, so I had to call it quits and go to bed.  This morning, my youngest DS was running a temp.  So, he went back to bed, the oldest got on the bus and momma got to finish Deep Blue Sea!  Yay!

Here's part 12

Here's the whole thing, cat hair and all.

Stitched on 28 ct black Monaco
all silks converted to HDF

I did make a few changes since I stitched on black.  The red fish in parts 5-8 were back stitched in DMC 902.  I backstitched the other fish in part 5 in DMC 3838, in part 6 in HDF Chrysocolla 2255 which is what I converted Gloriana Blue Hawaii to, in part 7 DMC 725, in part 8 I used DMC 3813.

In part 9, I back stitched the seahorses with DMC 501.  In part 10, I used DMC 435.  In part 11, DMC 3862 and in part 12, Primitive Barn Olive which I converted from Caron Waterlilies Pesto.
