How about stitching a croakie?

I've been procrastinating for the last two years about designing and stitching a shop model croakie.
I didn't care for some of the designs that were available commercially.  Finally,  I decided to select a stitch and do it in various colors.  Here are the beginnings of the Needle Nicely croakie.  It is the nobuko stitch done in 3 shades from fuchsia to lavendar to pale lavendar.
I'm going to stitch it one inch wide by 15 inches long.  It takes surprisingly more time to stitch than you expect!

This is a photograph of a non-needlepoint croakie.
