On the other hand, this month I picked back up on a project that's been sitting on the back burner and finished it! Drum roll please! Hot off the presses (if you can't already guess from the pictures): I have just finished up the instructions for my Fancy Fish tutorial.
I designed and stitched my first fish back in 2008 and have been in love with the Possibilities ever since. It's such fun playing with color combinations, different tail and fins, even different ways of creating the eyes. So many fun little details and possibilities, the hardest part is deciding when enough is enough.
Last Spring, I started work on the tutorial, writing directions and creating most of the Illustrator diagrams. Then I got side tracked by other projects. Last month, I resuscitated the project and since February I've added several new fish to my happy little school as I tested and fine tuned the pattern.
Here are a few more pictures:

I've listed the pattern on Etsy, and will be adding kits early next week. This weekend will be crazy busy with the Destash Sale so I'll be doing my blog surfing and any other computer work come Monday (that includes mailing any PDF tutorials).
But just because I'm going to be delayed, doesn't mean you can't take a look at all the other Possibilities discovered by everyone else.
