Lucky Mermaids

It was really nice to spend another evening with the mermaids tonight :-) They seem to be bringing some very good luck to the Red Sox right now (they won their 11th straight game in a row tonight), so I am wondering if I should give them another night tomorrow?? LOL!! I am inclined to put time in on Mermaid Heaven, though. We'll just have to see...
This is for Carissa ~ this is my floss toss for Ellen Chester's An Emblem of Love, which we will start as a SAL together in mid-July on Mondays. Anyone want to join us?? My fabric is Lakeside Linens 40 ct Vintage Bittersweet. Hard to describe this color - it is a cream linen with a rose tone to it, but you really wouldn't call it a "pink linen."

I got another new chart today - I am getting smarter now about buying Blackbird Designs charts before they discontinue them.... they sure go out of print quickly!! I love this Christmas sampler, Blessings Be Thine. I am not a big fan of Christmas stitching, but I just couldn't resist! I dug through my stash of fabrics and found a perfect piece for this. I will use my Acorns & Chestnuts belfast linen by Sugar Maple Fabrics. I almost put needle and thread to the linen tonight, but I reminded (and scolded) myself that I just cannot do that right now! My sidebar here in my blog will surely show you why - way, way too many WIPS going right now!!

Stitched on today: Mermaids of the Deep Blue

Rats! I have Emblem of Love on my "to do as soon as possible" list, but with the Quaker Garden SAL and the VoHRH, I'm committed to enough at the moment. Still...it's only one day a week, right? Hmmm....

You move so fast on those Mirabilia projects, Carol! The Mermaids are really coming out great on that fabric.

Looks like the Mermaids are your game stitching for awhile - stitch slowly so that it lasts all season. :D
