As the little ship plunged through the darkness still shaking from the chill of the ghost, a thump and a growl was heard. Clicking paws the wolf leaped into the center of the chill. His jaws snapped shut and the ghost misted free to fly over the mast, away into the depths of the sea.
Satisfied the wolf curled up in a fluffy ball on the deck and slipped into a guarded sleep, as the little ship sailed on.
Soon there came a cry “land ho!” and from the top of the mast came a leaping dragon. Wee and small he was but full of energy. The perfect one to set out and look afar over the waves for a safe port.
Sand colored walls with a turret grew large and grand as the little ship sailed closer. They were safe at last. A port that was guarded by a castle.
And to everyone’s surprise the little ship grew up; she proudly flew her sails to flutter in the warm salty air of the sea. Her journey for now was over; but she was happy and looked forward to a little rest.
A whistle was heard along with the cry of “All Aboard” as a shiny engine pulled into view. Another adventure was about to start.
And now the tale of the little ship has to close but she wishes you all good cheer and most of all good luck to all that you will achieve your dreams and goals.
May 17, was special this year. It was a year of starts which also fell on my birthday. I saved a project for me. It was a birthday start, a name sake start and a year of starts project. I could not wait to start this one.
A wee bit blurry, but at the same time I believe that it adds a whimsical touch to the piece. I have been enjoying the Little House Needlework designs and my wish list is full of them.
Frederick has almost reached the one side, Irish blessings continues to sprout good luck through out the piece. My cup of tea is just a joy to stitch. I want to stitch them all!!
I am having fun. It is not a lot and for the most part I have stitched on the previous previous 17 starts : Frederick and Celtic Blessing . Here is April 17. Insert drum roll. (Sorry I had to do it!!)
There are 3 cute designs; and they are calling to be stitched. I could sneak them in for another addition to the 17s. Hmmm I will think about it. Next month I have a plan. It is my birthday on the 17th …. No peeking and I will never tell.
It is the day 17 start only a week and a couple of days late. Honest I did start on March 17.
Here is another picture.
I had another project planned but somehow the purple robes of a wizard did not fit into the green idea of St Patrick’s Day and I changed my plans. There is more progress but the darn phone crashed so the picture will have to wait!
