Mermaids Finished & Next WIP

Hi All!

Yes, I was able to get "Mermaids" 100% completed over the weekend as I had quite a bit of down time for some reason. (NOT complaining!) This is for one of my nieces, Lexi -- I'm really happy with the way it came out.

 I stitched this piece using the suggested fibers and made a few small adjustments.  I added Lexi's name down the bottom where it was supposed to say "Mermaids", put three french knots vs. the called for one yellow cross at each of the flowers, and added pearl seed beads on Krenick braid in sea green where the pattern called for french knots.  Below is a close up of one of the mermaids.
 My next project will be a quick punchneedle design called "Sam the Snowman" by Stone and Thread.  Winter has finally come to Mass. -- no snow yet but it was 4 degrees (not 34, not 24... only 4) yesterday at 9am so I figure this guy will be right at home.
I'm thinking he'll work up quickly -- I'm possibly making a christmas stocking for someone who doesn't have time to stitch it herself (pending details) and I'm also anticipating a model piece to come in fro a designer I'm doing some work with so I don't want to start anything large that will distract me from either.  ...not to mention my snowman addiction...

Have a great day and I'll be back most likely on Wednesday; just keep stitching!  ~Nicole
