Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope everyone is having, or has had, a safe and happy holiday! Mike is busily getting his computer (our main machine) set up right now, so my internet may come and go tonight as he gets it all organized. I think I should be able to get back online before bedtime to post my progress of my first night on Mermaids of the Deep Blue... but if I can't, I will edit in the morning :-)

Yep, the network is all set here, so here is my first WIP pic of Mermaids of the Deep Blue :-) This one is very fun to stitch. I haven't had a Mirabilia in my rotation since I finished Petal Fairy a few months ago, so this was a refreshing and welcomed change. As you can see, one of the mermaids has a face already - had to get that done! My fabric is Ocean Waves 32 ct belfast by Stitches and Spice. And, now the Mirabilia SAL is officially started for me!

Deciding what to stitch today was a bit more confusing than I had expected it to be - Martina dropped down the passwords for both Medieval Town Mandala and Mystery IX early today... now, this may not be a very popular opinion, but I truly do dislike when stitchers in the groups start to beg Martina to give the passwords early. I feel like they are aggravating her, and well... come on guys, can't you all just wait?? Sigh. Anyhow, I will start my Mystery IX tomorrow. Part 4 for Medieval Town Mandala looks easy for this month.

We had a quiet night in, as you can well guess... it started snowing in the mid afternoon after we had gone to run an errand and had lunch at Cactus Jack's... my guess is that it is still snowing even now...

Hope everyone did indeed have a Safe and Happy New Year!

Happy New Year to both you and Mike! I can't wait to see your progress on Mermaids of the Deep Blue. I thought my fabric for this piece would turn up today but, it didn't. :( I hope it comes Tuesday. I can't wait to start on this piece.
