I started her on October 1st, 2011 and I finished her December 21st, 2011. She's stitched on 32 ct. opalescent linen that I dyed myself. I love dying fabric and will post pics when I dye different fabrics. The same day I finished Shimmering Mermaid, I started Mirabilia's Mermaid of the Pearls. I've converted most of the colors from blues and greens to wine shades. I'll post a pic in a few days when I've gotten farther than her hair. Thank you so much for reading my blog!
