Sweet Mermaids

The Spring Ride SAL will be starting up in May, but until then, I am really trying to get some time in on Mermaid Heaven. Unfortunately, I couldn't finish the rocks tonight. I need to dig out some more DMC 840 (and some 839 and 841 too), as I have run out....

Finally... I heard from Katrina tonight that her birthday gifts from me have arrived. I sent them via Global Priority Mail, but somehow they arrived by slow boat instead. I sent her a package of goodies, and this:
Kathy's Violets Biscornu
Chatelaine
Mint Green Cashel Linen, DMC floss, Rainbow Gallery Petite Treasure Braid, Miyuki Delicas Beads, Mill Hill Petite Beads
Stitched 3/30/07 - 4/1/07



I have to apologize to those of you who use Google Reader (as I also do). I recently learned that you cannot access the comments section of my blog using the Reader. I am trying to fix it, but cannot figure it out... anyone know? I might just change my template... Also, sorry! No blog reading today - that was one very long clinical seminar today, then out to dinner with Mike and started stitching quite late. I am sure I can catch up this weekend :-)

Stitched on today: Stitched on a gift, and Mermaid Heaven

Your mermaid is so pretty, I love seeing her pop up in your rotation with more progress. Your Biscornu turned out lovely as well, I can't believe how many different and beautiful patterns you've found for these.

Your biscornu is stunning Carol! When I put the Mermaids down it was cause I was working on the rock. Kind of got stuck there. Maybe if I jump back up and work on her tail I'll be able to get going again.

That's a lovely biscornu!

My mail (from the US) has been unusually slow lately. I guess there are nothing but slow boats right now. ;)

Jacqui said...

She's looking lovely! And I love the biscornu!

Nicole said...

I'm always a fan of the mermaids :)

The biscorni looks great - love the colors :)

I didn't realize you could comment on anyone's blog through google reader, I always open it up in another window to comment - probably why I don't comment often.

If you figure out how to change your blog can you let me know so I can do the same?? Thanks!

Great progress this time round. Funny how you always end up with all the other colors near the one you need but not that actual color.

What a great gift! I love the bead you picked for the center.

Karin said...

The biscornu is *gorgeous*! I love those colours. The Mermaid is coming along well.

Rowyn said...

Wow, the biscornu is so beautiful! And the Mermaids are coming along well.

Re your Google Reader comment - I have to admit I use Newsgator for my blog feeds, and I can never just click on your post to comment, I always have to click on the main blog then click on the comments section of the relevant post ... just one of those things I got used to when you changed your blog (I have the same problem with Dani's-tkdchick).

On another note, your latest biscornu is another total stunner! I've been thinking of doing a couple of those freebies, and you are now finalising those ideas ... just exceptional! :D

Lizzy said...

Mermaid Heaven is so beautiful, Carol... :-)

The Biscornu is absolutely gorgeous! I love this one! Beautiful, beautiful finishing! :-)
