I'm delighted that I'm ahead of my time-table for the stitching on the seashell tote.
I've finished all the stitching in Paternayan. The water in the seafoam is stitched in one strand of white yarn and one strand of the pale aqua "water". It doesn't show up that differently, but I suppose that's because there isn't a vast area of color.
This is a better view of an area of the seafoam.
Now, I get to stitch what I think of as the fun parts of the canvas. On to the design. I'll report again in another 2 or 3 weeks.
