Ta - Ta - Ta TUSAL Time...


Well fellow stitchers we have a full plate today - New Moon, Spring Equinox, Blood Moon Eclipse, depending on where you are in the world.

As you can see from my beaker the threads have been smashed down to make way for the next WiP orts.  They're kind of hard to see as they're a single ply of black floss.

 
The WiP I decided to work on is Mother Skunk and Babies by Candi Martin / Candamar Designs, Inc. © 1983

I started the project back in 2001 and last worked on it in 2004.  Its plaintive cries died out to a ghostly whimper long ago.  So I thought I would give it some much needed loving.  When I started this I was using a hoop and the fabric now has a dirty hoop-ring hue.  I have managed to iron out the hoop-ring ghosts and have put it on my last available scroll frame.

Here are the before and after progress pictures.

 
 
This picture was taken outside when the sky was overcast - sorry for the dark look.
 
Thank You to all my friends, followers, and lurkers for stopping by my Blog.

This is going to look so cute when its completed. Your stitching is amazing. Love the turtle planter in the background of the orts beaker.

That's such a different type of project! I personally find skunks quite cute even though they can be smelly :) Remember Pepe Le Pew cartoon????
