Pelicans, vii

Well, these puppies (excuse me, pelicans) are taking forever!  Of course, part of the reason for the slowness is Nablopomo 2013 and my wanting to blog every evening.  Not to mention the mental exercise of actually coming up with topics worthy of blogging about.  It's a tough job, but I'm determined to do it.

We can thank the US curling elimination rounds for the 2013 Olympics for my progress on the pelicans today.  I sat watching (and stitching) the US men battle each other for 3 1/2 hours this afternoon.  And I get to do the same this evening when the women are in curling combat.  Oh, delight.  My husband who is quite fair-minded, is lukewarm in his enthusiasm for curling.  So he can watch football next weekend, she says. 

If you look closely, you can see that all of the top knots and bills are completed.  I have also stitched the heads of the two pelicans on the right in basketweave, including their eyes.  The rest of the heads are my goal for the week.  Then we can talk stitches for the bodies.

  1. The chain stitches give them such self-satisfied smiles! Looking great--keep curling, er--I mean stitching.
