I lied :p

I didn't work on Octopus Treasure Cave at all this weekend... 
I started Spring Knotgarden instead. :p

Part one is nearly complete - just some more beads to do, plus the flowers in the corners (you can see the stems for the first bunch in the upper left).  The picture is terrible, it seems like it's impossible to capture the look of these designs in a photo!  It's MUCH prettier in real life and VERY sparkly!


I thought this was going to be a super-fast stitch (part one, anyway!) but there's a lot of detail in a small space, so this is about three days of work already.  Still, I'll be on to part two before the weekend... but that part's huuuuge.  And gorgeous!

By the way, the magazine offers from the UK turned out to be legit!  I sent in the subscription request for both without prepaying, and as of today I've received sample issues for both.  Now I have to decide if I really want to get them... they're expensive, but so much better than the outdated garbage that's filled 90% of JCS recently.  I know that sounds mean, but the last few issues of JCS haven't had a single design I'd actually stitch!

Enough rambling, time to relax. :D
