IHSW Results, Dolphins: Update Two and Morning Project: Update Sixteen

I have lots of updating to do this week, so no waffling!!!  For this month's IHSW I was disappointed not to have as much stitching time as normal so I sent what time I had completing the September Owl for the Oakhaven SAL.  It is such a cute owl and I LOVE the colouring on the leaves, they really 'pop' off the fabric:

And all of them together:

Hopefully next IHSW I will have a bit more time to stitch.  Last week I finished the next (second) page of my large dolphin design.  It is sun a fun stitch and the large dolphin is starting to show!! I am super excited to continue this design as I want to see the dolphins come to life.  Although it is made up of large chunks of colour, the detail in the sea is really effective, it really feels like the sun is shining through the ocean.  Next up is the fifth (and penultimate) page in my fractal bookmark:

The page I was working on:

And as a whole so far:

Next up is my current progress on my morning project.  Average Dog is going really well and is such a pleasure to stitch:

Thats all for now but I just wanted to let you know to stay tuned to this blog because I intend to host a giveaway either at the end of this week or beginning of next as a thank-you to all the lovely comments and inspiration that I have gained through the blogging/forum world.

Happy Stitching Everybody!!!


  1. Love the owls and lovely progress with your dolphins and your not-so-average dog!

  3. Those owls are ADORABLE!!!
    I love your other projects, too - great progress!

  4. Awwww, I love that owl!!! I think you've made huge amounts of progress, Donna. :D The dolphins and doggy look great.

  5. Great progress! I'm a part time runner at the moment and really need some inspiration to get the trainers back on - I've not run since before the school holidays!

  6. The alendar owls are lovely, and the dolphins look amazing... you really stitched a lot this weekend :)

  7. Hi threadbear, I never thought I would be a runner but I LOVE it. I have a half marathon coming up in a couple of weeks that I can't wait for !!!
