I spent a good deal of time last week preparing an Underwater-themed block for a Round Robin. I thought I had signed up for the RR, but when the group list came out yesterday, I was not on it. I have since discovered that instead of hitting "Send", I hit "Save", and my sign-up email was sitting in the Drafts file.......oops. So, since the block is started, and I shouldn't really be taking on another RR right now anyway, I am going to "stitch along" on my own, and sell this as "art to frame" in my Etsy shop.
When designing this block, I knew I wanted to include a treasure chest on the ocean floor. I wasn't sure how to go about this, since drawing is NOT one of my strong points. Here's my solution: I went to my local thrift store and got this:
There are a couple of treasure chests there, and I may have to add a grumpy octopus to my block as well!
The studio clean up still drags on. I have 10 boxes and bins of various sizes ready to be moved to the storage shed. I think there are a couple more boxes' worth of things in the closet that need to be boxed up temporarily, then I can post pictures and call this project finished at last.
Have a great Monday and happy stitching!
