Crazy January start #29

Day #29 of the Ultimate Crazy January Challenge is The Wave, a painting done by William-Adolphe Bouguereau in 1896.  The chart is from Cross Stitch Collectibles.  It has 28 pages and I would be happy to finish one page this year.  My goal was one 10x10 block today, but I am missing one floss color, DMC 157.  There were 10 different colors in this block of sky!  This will be about 20" x 15" on 18 ct off-white Aida.  I don't expect to finish this one any time soon!
The Wave
The confetti in this full-coverage design it just like the sky on Flaming June and Canyon Waterfall, but I didn't choose one of these as the companion WIP.  Instead, I thought the perfect match for this woman on the sand would be Beach Babe by Diane Arthurs!  I started her last January and never touched it again until today when I finished stitching the little blue pouch hanging from her neck with a goldfish on it.  She will be about 6" x 8" on 14 ct white Aida.

The first one looks and sounds like a HAED to me. Very pretty though. I love the 2nd one. Too cute!

Love the weather app on the blog. Since it was -14 in IL this am, I was not happy to see your temps.
Love The Wave. It will be beautiful.

These are just perfect Companion WIPs.... I have to say I am thinking I am more like Diane Arthurs Beach Babe but how cool would it be the Babe waiting for the Wave...
