Storm in a Tea Cup

Well, I did it. I made it back here before Christmas, what do you know!

I thought I'd post an update on Tempest for all to see. It's slow progress but he's coming along. I'm really enjoying him. There is a lot of thread blending and I did say never again after The Wave but, hey, I guess I'm just a sucker for punishment.

I've had a bit of a hic-cup with HDYGG. The fabric I've used isn't long enough! Nightmare. I'm going to have to improvise somehow. I knew that it was going to be tight when I selected the fabric - it was an off-cut from something else, but I thought I would just about get away with it. How wrong was I? If you've got the pattern and have any brigth ideas they will be gratefully received. Here's my problem:-

At the bottom of the dark green stitching there should be another large flower mirroring the one at the top in the picture below. There is obviously no space for this. So, I don't know. I may just do as many of the other flowers that will fit and leave the bottom one completely.

How frustrating to be that close! Tempest is coming along really well

Ack! You are SO close! I think your idea will work the best.

Tempest is lovely :o)
