Under the sea SAL - Durene Jones (Part 3)

 
 
 
 
 
Hello Peeps!
 
 
I am back again with another small post about the
and this time I am on track & up to date with it all.
 
 
A few little crosses later and part 3 is done!
 
 
 
 
Still stitched on 16 count Aida fabric from Sew It All, ocean colour
DMC threads
 


 
A focus on that funny looking sparkly fish...
 
 

 
 
Right, what to stitch next?
 
I am quite tempted with a cheeky small new start,
I better go & have a look in my stash, to see what takes my fancy.
 
 
 
 
See you soon with more little crosses,
 
Toodles,
Mii

    1. No idea Jo, I'm just stitching the fish!
      It is possible that Durene took inspiration from an angelfish when designing, you'll have to ask her :)
