Mermaid Undine is Finished!

Well, it took a month longer than I'd planned but I finished Mermaid Undine by Mirabilia Designs.

She is stitched on Lilypad Opal Cashel from Under the Sea Fabrics.  As you can see, I brightened the colors a little and substituted Swarovski Crystals for the larger Mill Hill Beads.  I wish I had taken more pics but The Husband kinda rushed me near the end.  I'll take some better pics this weekend.

I also made a few scissor fobs for the Under the Sea Fabrics cruise next month.

I think they came out really cute!  TTFN!

FINISHED Finishes and a Few WIP Pics.

Hello All!

I feel like I've been stitching up a storm!  I have THREE active WIPs!  I blame my friends Kenny and Andrea.  I also got two pieces back from the finisher!  Yay!

Here is Buttercup AKA Enchanted Mermaid back from Jill Rensel.  LOVE how she came out and I have her hanging in a spot so I can see her from my stitchy spot.  Thank you again to all of my friends who contributed!

And here is Elphaba AKA Ana back from my finisher.  She is finished into a stand alone cube and I love her!  You can email me at the profile email if you'd like the name and email of my finisher, Diana.

And onto the WIPs!  I couldn't very well stitch Elphaba the Wicked and not stitch Glenda the Good.  So here's my modest start on her.  Karen helped me again with the crown and I'll post the chart and color conversion when she's finished.

This is Sunflower Fairy from the September 2009 issue of Cross Stitch and Needlework.  She's so cute and tiny!

This is the most recent pic I've taken of Mermaid Undine but I'm quite a bit further.  She could be done in a week or two if I wasn't distracted by Glenda and Sunflower Fairy.

Well, that's it for now!  TTFN!
