Plantain

Next one is Plantain. I used Caron Wildflowers (cotton perle) Celadon (067) for the stem with Hungarian braid stitch and French knots for the flower. The leaves are done with Thread Gatherer Dark Forest silk (SNC089).

Close to the finish

I have almost finished my Octopus Treasury Cave. It is very difficult to make a good photo, the real colors are deep blue with some darker/lighter parts. It was hand dyed by Barbaral for me, and it turned out exactly as I imagined. Closest to real life is the first picture I posted, but the corals and the animals are much brighter and colorful in reality. I am not the best to play around with the photos, and lack the endurance to finish it properly. For the final one I will ask the in-house-know-to-all (aka my husband) and you will see it in full glory. Only the last shell is missing and the treasures - beads and crystals! I want to finish it during the 100 day Chatelaine challenge - there is still 15 days to go, so it is easy-peasy...

Octopus growing

I was stitching away with the 100 day challange, and moving along nicely. I was missing a few, but still I made quite a good progress
