Mighty Whale Update

Am so glad I chose this as my next project as it is pure joy working on it.  This is an antique adaptation with unknown designer. I drew mine out to measure 19.5 x 22 which is a suitable size for me and be able to hook the men in the boat using left over slivers of wool ~  uh remember I'm a wide cut hooker.  The bodies were #7 or 8 and the heads, hats oars were what ever slivers I'd saved.
When first drawing out the design thought I'd like the inside border to be wonky like the original antique.  Then decided against that so you will see the red lines drawing straight of grain.

Now the colors for sky must be decided.  Here is the original antique so you can ponder what the heck I'll do next.


  1. You are moving right along and it is looking good!

  2. Well I don't think a blue sky would be in order, but I know you will pick the best color. Janice
