Great Wave Stitch-a-Long, part 8

Hi everyone! Another check-in, another "late" posting. I'm one of the folks on the far end of the world, so I usually try to get my post scheduled for just after midnight my time. This time, frankly, I just forgot! 

I've been working, slowly but surely on my Great Wave piece, and continue to be amused by where I see it. This was hanging on the wall of a nearby ramen restaurant:

If Godzilla really was in my picture, would already have stitched his head! 

Here's where I was last time:

And here's where I am this time:

The keen-eyed of you will notice that I've completed another column! (And notice that I keep "stitching outside the lines" when I have some thread left on my needle...)

I am now about 1/6 of the way done with the stitching... so there's a long way to go. Here's some perspective. I'm working on the top half, the bottom extends a little past the "roll" of the frame. And all that to the right...

BUT I'm still enjoying it and -- here's the exciting thing -- I'll have my first bits of light blue in the next column!!! But I'm getting ahead of myself. 

I'm going to wrap this up so I can check out what the other stitchers in this stitch-a-long are up to. It's always inspiring to see their amazing projects:

See you in three weeks!
