Remember, I warned you. Gardening, hiking, and generally enjoying gorgeous spring weather leaves little time for sitting at a sewing machine or manning a hook! But I did finally finish embroidering Bean's picture. This was done mostly on Wednesday evenings curled up and watching LOST. What wasn't done by the season finale was finished while watching the first disc of Firefly, loaned to me by a friend. Since Bean's original drawing was in pencil, I chose to replicate that by only using grey thread:

I'm pretty sure that's the first of many!
