Time does fly when you're having fun!
After a completely draining "budget day" behind the computer at work, I figured I'd be too pooped to work on the turtle, but art is SO energizing! It took me a little bit to get into it, but before I knew it, it was 11:00 p.m.
I touched up the stitching around his head, finished the scales, and defined his flipper with thread. The embroidery portion is complete and I put my Bernina away.
Now my sweet 1600 is awaiting the quilting, but I still need to decide on borders and background. I'll do that tonight (I hope!).
By the way, honu is Hawaiian for sea turtle.
