Disclaimer: There are 2 stitching pictures to start this post, then there are pictures of Cronus my Kingsnake. Just so those who don't like the snakes can avoid the last of the post. :)
Well I survived the first canvaswork class last week. There is ALOT of counting in canvas. Just worked on the outer border, done with all continental stitches. I am not even halfway done the border, so wanna try and do that before next week's class if possible. Here it is to date:
This design is from Big Toe Designs and is on 32ct Linen (I think, might be 30 actually…):
As many people ask me about Cronus I thought I'd share a few more pics and talk a bit more about him. For those that haven't been following Cronus is the hatchling Kingsnake that I got in the summer. While we have two other snakes they are really the B/F's more than mine. this one I picked out. And of course I managed to pick the weird one. We're a bit concerned about his behavior these days, it's very odd. So we've decided to suck it up and pay to get him into the vet this weekend. I think he's probably fine (and just a weirdo) but I need the peace of mind.
Here is his new set-up. (he has been upgraded to a larger tank, sorry don't have a picture of Onyx's new home yet…)
And here he is hanging out in his branch area. He's about twice as long as he was when we first got him. I think he's over two feet now I think:
Got lots of errands to do this week it seems. But hopefully I'll find some stitching time in there. And American Idol starts tonight, so gonna PVR that and stitch to it at some point. Will be interesting to see what Steve Tyler is like.
I have been stitching on Dragons and will do a pic in the next post. I'm almost halfway through the first page of the year already!
