Back On The Chain Gang


I have made a decision since my last post regarding the issues surrounding Sea Flora. I have decided to to finagle the design so it can be stitched in some form. In other words, work with what I have, and add elements from some other designs and/or create something myself. I am still admittedly in somewhat in a snit over this debacle. As such, I have decided to set her aside for a while in order to calm down a bit more. I have a plan for her, and it will involve a fair amount of finagling. Since I have all summer to stitch on her, I will remain calm and carry on stitching. I blindly reached into the  Bin O'Shame and this next project is what came up. It's going quite quickly now and I am really enjoying it. It got off to a slow start, but I am hoping that it can be finished fairly quickly. Now that I said that, let's hope Mr. Frog doesn't show up, haha! 

At any rate, here is what will eventually #18 from the  Bin O'Shame
