Ocean Critters Seahorse - finished

Good morning all!

Yep, the finishes for June are continuing. I started Seahorse back in the middle of May, showing you this progress picture after just under 7 hours of stitching:


Well, I'm proud to announce that Mrs. Seahorse is now finished:

Ocean Critters - Seahorse by Janet Morningstar for Moonlight Inspirations
Stitched on 16ct Ocean over-dyed aida by sewitall.com 2 over 1
Stitch count 98 wide by 122 high
Started - 15th May 2016
Finished - 13th June 2016
Total stitching time - 25 hours

I can honestly say I enjoyed every single stitch in this project, probably because both the threads and fabric colours were so bright and gorgeous to work with.

As soon as I had taken Mrs. Seahorse off the scroll bars another piece of fabric went straight on. It's for the Dolphin in the same Ocean Critters series and will no doubt be started tonight. There are also some rather cute and playful dolphins in this month's Cross Stitch Crazy issue 218 which I just HAVE to stitch. I know I shouldn't have any more new starts, but what the heck? If the newstartitus bug is calling, I'm answering!!

Take care,
Rachel x

PS I still haven't read any blogs for about 6 weeks now. I will catch up one day - promise!

Very fun, cute finish! And good luck with the dolphin. I don't mind if you're not visiting as long as you're stitching and I get to see the results. :)

Love the ocean critters! My stitching has been non existent these last couple months. Maybe I'll get back at it in July.
