Enjoying the Mermaids

I am really enjoying my few days of being able to get really into Mermaids of the Deep Blue! It is a fun and relatively quick stitch.... I will be working on the Houses of Hawk Run Hollow SAL tomorrow night... but then I can devote Friday to the Mermaids again (which should be a longer stitching night) before all the new passwords start up on Saturday :-) ***And those who know me well also may have noticed that this is a good day for me... I got the second face done! I love to get faces done as soon as I can!! LOL

I am sorry to those who are wondering what is up with me... I know I have been a little quiet lately... I am just loving every minute of non-Chatelaine stitching I can get right now (I don't regret my Chatelaine commitments at all, but I love the freedom this week)... so sorry! I will get back to my regular emailing habits quite soon, I am sure! (Plus... my work days sure have been long this week - I thought the nice warm weather would evoke some client cancellations, but not the case at all...)

Stitched on today: Bordeaux Mystery Sampler and Mermaids of the Deep Blue

Those Mermaids are looking good Carol! ... as is all your stitching :) I must congratulate you on keeping up with your Mysteries - I know it must be hard work ... even if it is enjoyable.

Loving all your stitching, as always ~ sorry I don't always get time to comment as often as I should!

Take that well deserved stitching time :) I love this mermaids piece, especially watching it come to life! Keep up the great progress so I can live vicariously through you're stitching :)

Fantastic progress, Carol! The ladies are looking awesome! It is amazing how much having a face adds to the project.

Looks great Carol.
I decidd to not to stitch on MTM in April as I want to do also some other things.

I imagine you feel like you've been let out of a cage for awhile stitching purely out of your own joy. Not that MTM isn't wonderful and something that you want to do - it's just very time intensive!!

The Mermaids are looking beautiful Carol. I'm not surprised you're loving time out from Chatelaine - they look so complicated.

Hope you are well. I've enjoyed seeing the piccies of your kittes recently too.

Beautiful work. Seeing your progress on the mermaids makes me want to start this too. I don't have the fabric for this yet. What colors would you suggest in a 28ct lugana? I've looked at Silkweaver and think that Oceantide might be the one. I'm itching to start on this, but also have Medieval Town Mandala to do soon (fabric on the way) as well as Taj Mahal Garden Mandala.

So much to do, so little time!
