d=Dolphins version four or five finshed

Saturday 29th May 2010: well to say i am glad to see the end of this project is a big understatement here is the long story behind the finshed piece.( she asked me for dolphin simple i thought)
Well for a small project this has probably been my most challenging to date and many problems and attempts along the way.No 1) it was free chart from Internet anchor thread choose by Katieno2 ) I decided to use evenwaeve Katie did not like the materialno3) switch to aida material it took three lots of unpicking before i realised it was chart so half done dolphin in the bin.Things could only get better???? I made katies mum buy a beginings kit of Internet i changed fabric to 16 count aida on roll now so wrongNo4) the chart was in colur blocks not by favourite so i misconted a few times so a bit of frogging.Then I did get on roll until it came to lettering it took 10 attempts to get astrophe right as no chart phew no more problems wrong again it took 4 attempts to get the letter o right. Must say i pleased with end results though. Going to make it to canvas wall hanging for katies bedroom door. I am taking a few days stitching break i have earned it i think and doing some knitting now. thanks for looking hope you like it Katie better had or there be big trouble.


  1. Another lovely finish Polly. Am sure it will be appreciated. :0)

  2. Wonderful, and i bet Katie loves it

  3. That looks great Polly. I say well done for sticking with it even though you had many problems. And frogging is always a pain in the rear. I bet Katie will treasure it for years to come.
