Hello Everyone!  It has been a busy couple of weeks for this girl!  Last weekend I took a finishing class with the lovely Jane Timmers and this weekend we had a massive Cinco de Mayo party.  I've gotten a little stitching done, but not too much.  I started my Merchant Mermaid a few days after I finished Mermaid of the Pearls.  So far, I've only stitched about 1/3 of the anchor motif at the bottom.

I'm changing the "MH" in the anchor to "SS".  The "SS" stands for "Siren's Song" which is what is replacing the "Mill Hill" at the top.  Amanda has helped me by recharting the words to say "Siren's Song Pub and Inn".  I wanted her to look like an old British tavern sign.  She's being stitched on 28 ct. Ale linen by Picture This Plus.

The reason I've only done a little bit of Merchant Mermaid is because Part 5 of Deep Blue Sea has come out and it's a doozy!  It includes a large section at the top.  I'm working on seaweed and border tonight.

I apologize for the pictures.  I managed to screw up the settings on my camera and I'm still trying to figure out how to get them back to normal!  Also, I want to announce Karen as the winner of my giveaway!  I'll be emailing you soon!  I have some dental work this week and a wedding to attend next week so I will probably not post for a couple of weeks.  Hoping by then to have most if not all of Part 5 to show you!  TTFN!


  1. I'm loving your DBS updates...can't wait to see everyones on the board...

  2. I am sooo excited, Leslie! Thank you so very much!

    I love the changes you are making to Merchant Mermaid. British Tavern...makes total sense to me.

    DBS, too gorgeous! The coral is fantastic!

  3. What fun when life is a whirlwind. Enjoy!

  4. Hello

    Just found your blog.

    Your WIPS are looking lovely!

  5. Great start on MM - love the fabric it's on. And I can't WAIT to get to Part 5, though I am really trying to NOT start DBS at all - I really want to get to those jellies! LOL
