Summer Scuba Diver

The days are warming into summer, and there’s many weeds encroaching in the Haskap Berry orchard, but I did find a little time for stitching.

I’m no further along in the Box of Delights stitch-along but I did complete the first block in Shannon Wasilieff’s Fantasy Stitch-along. There are many, many beads in this lovely design.  I used a variegated floss by Threadworx called Wildflowers for her dress. The design has a beautiful frame, which I didn’t stitch as I have vague plans of using this design for a card sometime.

A blackwork scuba diver is happily bubbling away, hanging out with an octopus, colourful tropical fish, jelly fish and sea urchins in this Speedy Little Stitch pattern, my newest design. I recently discovered beautiful, hand-dyed flosses by Fiberlicious and used them in this design. The jellyfish and tropical fish are stitched with Raunchy Rainbow, and the diver’s bubbles and border of waves is stitched with Sea Moss. I have many more gorgeous Fiberlicious flosses and I have a design in mind for some of them. So much colour makes me a happy, happy stitcher!
