That is what I am down to (pretty much) now with Mermaids of the Deep Blue. I thought that tonight I was going to write that all the x's were done... but oops! Not so! I realized just a little bit ago that there is some Kreinik braid still to be done for the baubles around the hands of the upper mermaid... other than that, though, I just need to backstitch the arms of each mermaid and then do all that beading. I remember that Katrina had mentioned that it took her about a week to do the beading on hers. It will take me longer since I have SAL commitments and the trip to Hershey, PA next week :-)
It was a good mail day today - the first good one in a long while. I received some nice fabrics, which was a treat! I received my Treat of the Month from Sugar Maple Fabrics, and it is Winter Meadow belfast this month - very nice! I also received a FQ of 40 ct Light Cappucino by R&R, which I got for the greatest deal on ebay... and I got some Crystal Carnival belfast from Picture This Plus in a trade - for M Designs' new chart with the sun setting... cannot recall it's name! I saw somewhere that this is the called for fabric.
Hey, good news - Mike and I had dinner at my mother's tonight and my sister was also there. May seem like nothing, but my family almost never sees each other anymore (which makes me sad), so this was a real treat. Mom made a wonderful roast pork dinner tonight, and I had a good time :-)
