I decided to stick with Mermaids of the Deep Blue again tonight. I have fallen woefully behind in this Mirabilia SAL, yet I really love stitching on this one... I am sure they will be back a couple more times this week :-)
I was RAK'd again today!!! Barbara sent me this adorable Mansfield Park Sampler chart by The Sampler Girl! Barbara and I share New England roots and this sampler is so fitting. To be honest, I had been eyeing it and planning to get it. Thanks Barbara!
I have some questions to answer...
Gill - I will definitely be stitching the Fleur de Lis kit of Waiting for Neptune first.... but the jury is still out on the HAED chart... I do want to start Revelations soon and that will take a lifetime, so maybe I will only get around to the Fleur de Lis kit :-) You mentioned wanting to get these kits - try ABC Stitch Therapy in my sidebar... you can either email Marie at the shop or surf around - the kits are on sale right now :-)
Carissa - Yes, I am most definitely stitching the mermaids' arms using quarter stitches (and half and three quarter stitches too). This is pretty typical with Mirabilias... I find sculpting the pattern comes out better than how it is charted... you know what I mean, I am sure!!
Kath - glad you asked how many parts there are to MTM, as it made me smile to realize that I just got to the halfway point :-) There are 12 parts in all, will be ending in September, if I do manage to keep up with this each month...
Yay! Spring-like weather is finally working its way in here to New England - Woo Hoo!!
