  1. Morning Chris.....so pleased you're feeling better and even though you have been so poorly you managed to create another little masterpiece. Again I've not heard of this particular stitch but its lovely and the sea scene you have created with fishes, star fish, oyster (complete with pearls) is just amazing...your creativity and imagination is wonderful...

  14. Hi! I am a newbie to TAST....love your underwater scene with all the different elements! The red squiggly lines are particularly cool. Sure hope you are fully recovered. Take it easy. I am going to spent some time looking through your blog!

  15. Absolutely thrilling! Sorry to hear you were so poorly last week! You will gain your strength again but it does make us thankful for life! We have had a terrible month weatherwise too. Your embroidery is really stunning Chris, exceptional! Thinking of you.

  17. That wheatear stitch lends itself so much to underwater plants and those little fish with their bubbles, what a wonderful idea. How long do you spend designing your creation each week? Like someone has already commented I cannot decide on a favourite and it is still only April. Fabulous and keep on getting well. xx
