Growing Tails

I realized tonight that there is really very little stitching left now to do on Mermaids of the Deep Blue. Once I finish their tails, there will only be some backstitching left to do.... and then, apparently, about a solid week's worth of beading to do! I am on the task, and doing my best to be focused with this project now :-) I am hoping for an October finish.

Wow, they really are almost done! It's amazing how quickly you go from picking up a project you haven't had in a rotation in a while and finishing it! I'm looking forward to seeing this one with beading, it will be amazing.
