Yay, a chance to work on my mermaids again!!

Finally... at last... a chance to work on Mermaids of the Deep Blue tonight. What a relief! This project is such a joy to stitch! I wish I had more time for it.... I am beginning to get more done on the upper mermaid now :-)

Thank you to everyone who left some input regarding Houses of Hawk Run Hollow. I have decided that I am not going to rip all of that work out. I figure it will take its shape when it is done, and stay with the color theme of the rest of the sampler. I looked at the chart, and this house just plain old has a weird lawn. Would I have chosen these colors for this square - nope! But, I leave my trust in those who did decide - a combo of Carriage House Samplings and Vikki Clayton... I think it is strange but will work out. I hope this is the only square that will raise concerns for me re: the VC conversion, though.

Looks like I will probably be getting a snow day later this week - yay!! As much as I hate snow, I do love snow days when I can stay home and stitch! We'll see... Thursday is the likely day and that is still a bit of a ways off....

Stitched on today: Mermaids of the Deep Blue and Papillon Creations Mystery Sampler at work (no pic - sorry, it's in my briefcase out in my Jeep)

They are so beautiful Carol! I love the fabric you are stitching them on. I wish we got snow days here, but it seems in Canada everything goes on even if there is a blizzard LOL. Can't wait to see your next update, you're such an inspiration to stitch!

The mermaids are so pretty! I wish I was at a point where I could start mine....sadly, I seem to have "stalled" again on Once Upon a Time. :(

Jenn said...

Mermaids...is coming along nicely Carol. I really like this fabric. I hope I get to see this inperson at Celebration. :) I'll be sure to bring mine.

Send some of the snow my way! I could really use a snow day.

Hi Carol! Mermaids is coming along lovely!!
Thanks for your comment on the Angel of Sleep... Don't worry, my sleep has been back to normal for several weeks now! Yeah!

Hope you're having a great day :) Hugs!

Beautiful, Carol...it's nice to see these ladies again!

I think house 4 of HoHRH will look just fine when finished. I have looked at some other finishes and they look like yours. I am sure it will look ok when complete.

Judith said...

Looks great Carol. We never have snow days, when it snows we just have to come to work. Though I get Migraine when it starts snowing soon, so I already know before anyone knows we are getting snow.

Kim said...

Very beautiful project! Love the fabric. :D

Ah, another lovely project. I had another look at the finished picture of HoHRH, and think the original colours look really good, so well done for keeping them. Tomorrow I will go to the post office. I completely forgot that everything is closed until Wednesday, due to Carnaval!

Barbara said...

Hooray, I am back! Yay!!! Just got the replacement PC tonight.

You've got some great stitching going on - love the pictures! Sorry you're unhappy with the VC conversion for the lawn on HoHRH, and I hope it will all come together when some more is done on that square (got my fingers crossed).

Stay safe on those cold, snowy roads!!!

Hi Carol, great to see your progress on the mermaids - like you, I love working on them. I wish we could have a snow day here but the chances of that ever happening here, even in the depths of winter, are pretty much ziltch, lololol.

It is good to see those lovely merladies again. The look wonderful.

Jenna said...

Sounds like a good decision re: HOHRH. I hope that it will look better once you get through the design. Your mermaids are looking wonderful!
