Melville's Return

Finished!!!
"Melville's Return"
Cross-Eyed Cricket
stitched with DMC and WDW on Wichelt linen
This piece was a lot of fun.  Although I've never been crazy about Wichelt linen, and this experience didn't help...slubby, coarse, and generally bleh to work with.  But the design itself is great, and I love the finished product!  And my little whale modification always makes me grin.
If anyone else is going to stitch this, you WILL need at least 2 skeins of the WDW Aqua for the sky.  (My old LNS owner told me I'd need 3, which I did not.  I'm not sure how she need that much, since I had one entire skein plus a few lengths of another left over.)
