Anniversary seashell tote

In October, 2011, Needle Nicely will have been in Vero Beach, Fl, for 30 years.  To commemorate that occasion, I have asked  Trubey to design some special canvases.  One of these special canvases is a seashell canvas that will be made into a two-sided tote 13" long x 11" high x 4" wide.  This is one side (the other side is a mirror image).

 I started stitching this 3 weeks ago and am trying to spend at least an hour a day working on it at home.  The water and sand will be stitched in Paternayan wool in the basketweave stitch.  Here you can see that I have finished the water on one side. 

I'll post up-dated photographs every 3 weeks or so as I begin to make progress.  I want to finish stitching in time to send this to the finisher in August so it will be assembled by October 1.  Wish me success!
