First Day of Spring!

Well, it's officially the first day of spring!  Spring came roaring into San Antonio on the heels of some frightening thunder storms and tornados.  Today was beautiful but it is supposed to storm again tonight.  I spent the last week in Lousinana getting almost no stitching done.  I did a lot of drinking and eating though! 

I used the afternoon sun to finally get some progress pics!  I'm making some decent progress on Persephone but I'll be putting her away for a couple of weeks so I can get part three of Deep Blue Sea done. 

I messed up somewhere in the bottom of the tail.  I'm still not sure if I want to fudge it or fix it.  And Here is Deep Blue Sea as of this afternoon. 

I'm hoping to finish the Coral motif on the right side tonight.  Here is a close-up of the top motif.

These motifs are fun to stitch so far.  They have a variety of specialty stitches and threads.  I'm having a lot of fun with them right now.  Til next time... TTFN!


  1. all of your stitching looks great! keep up the good work.

    1. Your progress on both pieces are amazing! I bet you had a great time in Louisiana.

    2. I did! I ate so much food! Gumbo and crawfish and poboys and boudin and alligator...
