seahorse & winter love progress

I want to share a few progress photos of Seahorse Scissors & Fob and Winter Love…if you can call them “progress.” I suppose more x's stitched into a project (no matter how many) constitutes progress. It's been a little slow the last couple days on the stitching front but here they are.

I managed to get a little more red into Winter Love and the Seahorse has more shape to his head now, with a hint of pink added to the tail. The seahorse is stitched 1-over-1 on 29 ct so it has detail to it and the colors spring out. It looks like artwork as opposed to needlework. It's nice! Today I've been working on Traveling Stitcher by LHN and the colors are lovely. I'm not a huge fan of pink, but the Ladybug pink from Crescent Colours is so pretty and soft. I'm havin' fun with it.

Gotta split! We’re having a friend over for dinner this evening and we’re preparing the meal now to be ready around 6:00. Plus, I want to continue stitching on my Traveling Stitcher too.

Talk soon!
