The Sea Smells So Nice!!

And the word looks so pretty too!  Yep I've finished another page which is also the finish of another word!  It also means we've finished the first part of our phrase!    
My last report on this piece was gifted gorgeousness:

And on Sunday I got to here:

And today I finished:

Close up:

Also today I finished the white part of the next A but that will wait until the next post.

I'm really excited because the next page will be the middle of the top row.  I'm going to do the full page and then move down to do the 2 vertical pages (#s 16 and 30) so I only have to move my scroll rods once.  That will show us the beginning of the second half of the phrase I believe.  But the most exciting is that this next page will give me some new colors to play with (I think 5) and I realized I have to visit michaels because I somehow forgot to buy a color of floss.  When I buy, I usually look at my dmc sticker sheet to see what colors I don't have yet but it's weird because the two colors on either side of the one I need weren't peeled off so I don't see how I missed it.  Oh well, more shopping :).  My dad comes to town on Monday so I won't get much stitching in but it's the first time he's come to see me since I've moved 6 years ago lol.  I'm just really excited to get to the next page! :)

Thanks for stopping by!  I realized I never did my trip report as I was busy stitching so I'm off to do that now.  It's going to be very pic heavy mostly about Disneyland.  Hope to see you over there!


  1. Wow, you've done a lot of stitching! It's so beautiful esp. with that close-up shot, so many tiny squares! (and here I am just about to try my first 16ct, lol). Keep it up! Enjoy your advance Father's Day bonding:)

  2. Well this certainly has come on a lot since I saw this last... My own fault for not popping in more... Sorry, it's all that time I spent in hospital :(.
    Looking forward to seeing this grow more...
    Smiles :)

  3. You're amazing! Looks great.

  4. Congratulations on another word! You are making great progress on this one.
