DUCJC 2015 - Day 3

Good morning again!

I am very ashamed of myself for yesterday's progress. You see, this is the smallest of my 31 starts and I love it to pieces so I just kept on stitching... and stitching... and stitching! I did a bit early morning, more in the afternoon (whilst my son and I watched a Top Gear Challenges DVD) and even more in the evening, amounting to just over 5 hours in total. Oooops! When it comes to it I'll be stitching the tummy and swirls in DMC rather than the recommended Kreinik but adding some blending filament to the white clouds for a little bit of sparkle.

Tomorrow's start will definitely not be as productive as we will be taking down the Christmas decorations and preparing for school on Monday.

See you in the morning!

Love and hugs,
