Sparkly Mermaids

I decided to cheer myself up today with sparklies - lots and lots of sparklies. I got about half of the beading done on Mermaids of the Deep Blue today. Boy, do they ever look different now. I just figured out tonight that what they must be doing is bringing treasure up from the bottom of the ocean - you all knew that, but I just figured it out - LOL! I see a finish coming soon :-) But before I finish I need to dig out my digital camera manual and find out how to increase the resolution on my camera - you cannot even see all the beading in this photo.

Thanks to everyone for the many emails of concern regarding my early return from Hershey. All is OK. I don't want anyone worrying!!

Hi, Carol, I really enjoyed seeing you and meeting Mike at CATS. I was sorry to hear that you had to return home early - hope nothing is terribly wrong. I saw Mike as I was leaving Friday morning. I'm sorry I missed you.

Your stitching updates were a pleasure to read this morning, as they always are.

Now, how are you going to fit a LTD into your rotation?

Take care, Margaret
