Dewdrop Finish, a new start & WIP

I have a finish!
It's the Just Nan Dewdrop (that I was supposed to finish almost a month ago! But at least I'm close).
Here it is:


And here is a perspective shot as my B/F couldn't get over how huge the bead is in relation to everything else:


And with every good finish, there is a new start for me.
I have started this freebie from Krenik called Checkers the Pumpkin. It's almost all Krenik threads, so it's a slow go. But will be very sparkly when it is done.
It's being stitched on 30ct Sunflower Linen.


Here is what it will look like.


And finally a progress pic of the rubber ducky.
This one may take me a bit longer than I thought. But we will just have to see.



Coming up: I also worked a bit the other night on Part 2 of my Papillion SAL. But am not going to (likely) post a picture until I have the second part done.
I also need to get back into Judgement and start page 3, that epicness just doesn't stitch itself! :) And will also get more stitches in the Ducky.

Thanks to everyone for continuing to visit and for your comments!

Dewdrop is lovely! Congrats on the finish. Krenik - Checkers is so cute! I did one from them "Happy Jack", so nice. The stitching takes longer and you have to be more careful, but it's worth it in the end. Great work!

Dewdrop is a cutie :o) Can't wait to see your finished Kreinik pumpkin. I really like Halloween things. Thanks for your help with the different materials question I had a couple of days ago. You really helped me.
