Mermaid Heaven

Time for some other mermaids tonight! I took a look at my May goals to see how I was doing, and noticed I had not yet picked Mermaid Heaven up this month. It was very easy to decide to work on these mermaids tonight. I did an awful lot of brown rock and brown hair tonight. But the good news is that this project is such a quick moving piece every time I pick it up. Once I get through the last huge chunk of MTM, this one will probably get finished quickly :-)

The nice, hot weather continues here (I adore hot weather - I was born on one of the hottest days of the year in 1963, so that may have led to my love of the heat). My office in Haverhill looks a tiny bit better - the landlord has put up some new ceiling tiles, but not the two that need to be cut (they are in the curved part of the ceiling where the window bays out). Many are very water stained. Ugh. No news yet on my new office, though. That is a bit of a slow process... in the meantime, I must forge on...

Stitched on today: Surprise project that cannot be posted here ;-), and
Mermaid Heaven

Oh that is so cute Carol :) Not long to go and it will be done :)

Beautiful!

Oh, I love your mermaids Carol, they're so sweet :)

Hope you'll get that new office soon. Please enjoy the heat for me! We could do with that here. It was 50° at the warmest yesterday, and today should be no better.

This is such a sweet project - it's really coming along quickly! I do hope you'll get your office situation straightened out quickly.

Send a packet of heat/sun over here to western Europe anytime! ;-)

Mermaid Heaven is looking fantastic. I'm afraid I'm not enjoying this humid heat, though. Glad you are! :)
