In Like a Lamb...

Happy first day of March!  It is an absolutely beautiful day here in South Texas.  A pretty (but cloudy) 80 degrees!  Windows are open and fresh air in coming in!  I have had very little time for stitching the last few days but I do have some progress to show!  First, Persephone. 

I'm very close to being completely done with my color conversion and I will publish it here as soon as I get it all figured out. 

And here is Deep Blue Sea:

All I have left on Part one is backstitching so I am doing a little work on part three, more backstitching, then back to part three.  I had to break it up a little!

Now that I've shown you what I'm working on, let me show you all of my new fabrics I've received recently.  They are really wonderful!  This first one is a Sparklie's Solitaire Opalescent linen in 32 count.  I'm going to put Nora Corbett's Trick or Treat Fairy from the September 2008 issue of Cross-Stitch and Needlwork on this one.

This next one is a Silkweavers 28 ct opalescent called Mystical Seas and I absolutely love it!  Can not wait to see Nora's next mermaid because she will probably go on this!

And this last piece was hand-dyed by my friend, Jenetta and I LOVE it.  It is 28 ct jobelan.

I'm leaning towards Mermaid of Atlantis for this one but I may change my mind.  Thanks for reading and TTFN!
