We’ve come this far

Here’s the  second motif of the  doodle stitch along Picture4 100
I finished mine a little late ,as I ran out of tracing paper and carbon paper.I had to patiently wait for my dh to get it for me and he kept forgetting to get them on his way back from office.Anyways, I finished it up in a few hours. So fun! The third motif is already out and I plan to make an early start to it.
In the meantime, M  my little artist who saw this print out lying on my table had to have his take on the pattern.
So he quickly got out his pencils and colours and did this.
Picture4 090
I think he did a pretty good job . Don’t you?
He made me sign his name there in the picture for the watermark ! :))  [the child has a knack for coming in just in time when one of us think of using his things . He will  then make us  do exactly as he thinks it should be done or we cannot have it! If it is done his way, he is a generous little creature :))]
And this is the CAL so far…Picture4 132 
I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying this CAL.This is a great way to read patterns again.Plus,its  fun doing a little at a time with the bonus of being able to check if you are on the right track with the pictures there. Btw, I am using Anchor Mercer Cotton Size 20 thread in colour #0896 and a 1.25 Jimra Hook.
