Neglected Floss - March by jijikit Neglected Floss - March by jijikit
:faint:

So...I'm finally getting started on this years monthly projects...and I'm WAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAY behind!

After finishing the Pink Dragon, I was still itching to cross stitch; it just felt really good to get back to doing it again.

I decided to pick up something little and realized I needed to get going on these or I'd never get started! 

Looking at that pattern, I immediately thought of my daughter and her love of "Finding Nemo" when she was little.  So I decided to make the fishies Nemo and Dory colors.  Putting Dory's saying in it came later when I was trying to decide on this or actually putting my daughter's picture in it.  Karl chose the saying.  I like it, and I think El will too.  :)

so I got inspired and after some thiking it over I've just started something small and fishy with this quote for my friend-I have a week and three days to finish it before I'll go to visit her(she lives in Luxembourg) I certainly don't have enough projects to do as it is Giggle

If it's small, then it should go quickly.  I feel the same way - started two projects: one from my to do list and the other on the fly.  It's always a bit crazy being a crafter!  ;)

Good luck with the project.  I'm sure your friend will love it!  Post a pic if you get a chance!  :)

I've just finished it in the morning! :D originally I didn't really know what I'm gonna do with it-like, I didn't feel like putting it into classic frame, so wondered what to do, so I went to a shop with home decoration and found this glass photo-frame, I can say I'm pretty happy with the result :D ok, the frame is supposed to stand on the shorter side so like this, side-wise it won't stand  by itself but I think it could lay on a table like some kind of bowl alright, or if my friend would want it to satnd it's always possible to make it lean against soemthing :D I will post a pic here to my gallery after I came back from my friend's (she lives in Luxembourg, and I'm due to come to visit her) but for now, here's a pic in my stash to show you :D sta.sh/0m0o13cygzy thank you for the inspiration!!

Thanks!  I was a bit worried about using the two colors with all the back stitching, but it wasn't as bad as I thought it might be.  The french knot eyes, though, that I had to cheat a bit as my french knots STINK!  :XD:

You are welcome :) I'm glad it wasn't as bad as you feared with the back stitching :)

My French knots stink too - I cheat and do colonial knots which I find are easier
