Glob "the biscuit snitcher" Octopus

Embroidery of one of the charaters from a friend's book called The Whispering Sand. Glob is a talking octopus who can be quite friendly and helpful...when bribed with biscuits or blancmange. Described as an off-cream colour with a domed head but unfortunately against the black background the stitches look whiter than the greeny-beige I was going for. Might yet fill the back in somehow but I do like the idea of Glob floating in the blackness, dreaming of processed sugar!
Some in progress pics:

Finally one before the french knots went onto the tentacles:
