DUCJC 2015 - Day 7

Good morrow gentle folk!

Oh my goodness! This fabric was just about the best I have ever worked on - soft, smooth and with a gorgeous twinkle every time the needle touched it. I was drooling!

This chart is the second largest of my DUCJC projects but will stitch up quickly as there are huge blocks of colour and only a tiny amount of backstitching. Rock on! Some of the colours look a bit weird for a dolphin but they match the fabric perfectly and give the piece that tropical (rather than murky) feel I was hoping for. I won't stitch the fish as I don't think they're necessary. As usual, the photo doesn't quite do the fabric justice.

I'm drooling too! I love that fabric and the design too. I will have to look at Crafty Kitten's fabric. I have ordered scissors from her and she was lovely.
