Mermaid and the Sea Update

With so much company in the house, it is just too hard to pull out Mystery IX right now... we will be down to only one houseguest tomorrow, so for tonight I pulled out The Mermaid and the Sea... each time I pick it up, I enjoy it more!

I got an email from Anne tonight (from work, as her home phone is now dead) letting me know that she received a package from me today. She called herself "Gobsmacked," and I must say I love that term! I was recently admiring my "And A Forest Grew" chart, planning out that I will be starting it on January 1st as a big start for the new year... and I saw that there is a cute scissor fob chart in the leaflet. A quickie! So, I grabbed supplies and stitched it up. As I was stitching, it occurred to me that it would suit Anne - she loves birds, is a dear friend, and I had a little package of beads I needed to send to her anyhow! So... she got RAK'd by me....

What a fun fob to do for her, I'm sure she'll love it. Mermaid is so pretty, I really like the fabric that you are doing it on.

Carol-the fob is so sweet. Your Mermaid & the Sea is coming along nicely. I stitched in 2003 and it remains one of my all time favorite pieces. It always makes me smile when I see it on the wall.
