Great Wave Stitch-a-Long, part 12

Hi everyone! I can't believe it's been three weeks! Hopefully everyone had a sufficiently spooky Halloween and a festive Bonfire Night. I have been reading about how this weekend's "king tide" at the coast -- when the earth is closest to the sun and the moon is closest to the earth, high tides and big waves are expected. So here's where my "Great Wave" was last time:

And here's where I am, three weeks later:

It's really getting "wavy", isn't it?! I have the top halves of 13.5 columns complete, with 6.5 more to go. I'm working on another stitching project that's been taking up a lot of my time, but I should be able to have another half column done by our next check in. 

Oh, and me and my sprained ankle limped our way through the half marathon, and we had a great weekend away. And the very kind race director made sure I got bib number 100 to celebrate. 

And my ankle? It's much better now. We joked that we really got our money's worth during the race as we spent a long time out there!

But this is a stitching post (though it reminds me I do finally need to write up my race report!) -- so I'm looking forward to checking out the blogs of my fellow stitchers to see their beautiful projects. I'm sure they'll inspire you, too!


  1. Congrats on competing in and finishing the half marathon! Your wave is really growing.

  2. Well done on the 100! The wave is growing fast. I'm loving the deeper blues.

  3. Congrats on the half marathon finish, Sunny! Your great wave is looking grand!

  4. Yes, the wave is coming along great!

  5. good progress and well done on your half marathon!

  6. Love seeing all the extra blue as that wave grows in size! Ouch, glad to hear your ankle is much better now :)

  7. That's really looking nice.
