Time To Bead

I didn't work on Mermaids for long today, but, unless I come across a missed area (which would not surprise me!), I am now done with the x's and with the backstitching. So, the beading party began and I got some done up by the upper mermaid's hands. I don't think I will get to this again until after CATS, though. (sorry about the photo - I cast a shadow on the fabric tonight, oops!).

I spent the better part of my stitching time today working on a Christmas ornament - just a little Lizzie Kate freebie. I got the design stitched and am up to basting my stitching lines on the linen for the backing... not much left to do, but wanted to get to my Mermaids. I hope to finish it after CATS too :-) Then I will share it!
Daylily: House of Orange

Stitched on today: Lizzie Kate freebie (Joy) and Mermaids of the Deep Blue

The X's are done! Yay! This project is gorgeous. So is the HoHRH, and the WIP you picked up again, with the mermaids. I don't believe I ever saw this one before.

You must be getting so excited for CATS! Your mermaids (and your lily) are gorgeous.

Woohoo, you're definitely on the home stretch now! Have to say, Melissa's blog about HOHRH was hilarious! :D

Your mermaids look so lovely. The beading makes them extra beautiful.
Another great daylily. I always look forward to seeing each new flower posting.

Mermaids is beautiful. The fabric looks like rippling water which is really cool. I will have your piece done this week. Last week was insane and I don't think I was home one night. :D Ann.
