Background: This was originally intended as a gift for a friend after the birth of her first baby. I think that baby is now 7 or 8. Ooops!
Why it's not done: I've had this project mounted on a floor stand since I started it. The floor stand, given to me, has legs on both ends, so it's designed to straddle the stitcher's chair. Up until 2 years ago, my main stitching chair was a "chair and a half" similar to the one seen here. Of course, the floor stand wouldn't fit over this, so I had to use it in another room, which didn't have good lighting for stitching. As a result, I've stitched this only on sunny evenings and weekends, and not at all in the past year (though it's remained set up in my living room with a towel draped over it!).
What's left to do: The bottom of the skirt and all of the waves.
