Back to Mermaid Heaven at last... I have really missed stitching on this one. I find it is really a rather quick stitch without any fractional stitches or backstitching, save for minimal details like eyelashes. Very fun to work on! I hope that Jenn will be able to work on hers soon too :-)
I received some wonderful mail from Stitching Bits & Bobs today - I received the two copies of Spring Ride (one for me, and one for Karen - for what is bound to be an upcoming SAL sometime within the next year!!), Manorah Thai Dancer, a backordered skein of Gloriana Silk (Winter Woods)... and Fish City and the six skeins of NPI I ordered just a few days ago using the lovely gift certificate from Jenn. Everything in the package is wonderful, and it was such fun to look through it all :-)
Then I ordered this solo from Silkweaver tonight, as it appears to be the right size and perhaps a good shade to stitch up Manorah Thai Dancer- I just love this design so much!!

Mike and his friend, Dave, worked in the basement for 11 hours today - Mike feels that if they stay on this schedule, we should have a finished basement in 2-3 weeks! Can I possibly be that lucky??!
