A Cute Little Finish :)

Last week, Nora's Mermaid Letter L came out.  And like I've said for the last two months, I dropped everything like a bad habit to stitch it!

But there's more to the story.  I found a really neat port hole frame at Joann's last month and I needed to leave the L off in order for her to fit.  Since I love the original colors AND the L, I decided to change her to fit in the port hole.  Then I can stitch her again with the L in the original colors later one.

So here she is.  Reversed and converted to Aqua blue and pink and blonde.

Isn't she cute?  I LOVE the port hole frame I found for her.  She's currently at the LNS being fitted into her porthole.  I will totally be stitching her again in the original colors with the L.

Here is her conversion The left color is the Classic Colorworks called for in the design and the right size is what I used instead.
Aunt Marie's Violet --> Petite Silk Lame SP80
Cerise --> Gloriana Tropical Sea
Cobbled Peach --> Splendor 923 or DMC 754
Fresh Brew--> Gloriana Gold (in the hair only)
Hydrangea--> Silk 'N Colors Maid of the Mist
Jelly Roll--> Petite Treasure Braid PB22
Just Rust--> Gloriana Baby Corn 
Rainy Day--> Gloriana Blue Hawaii
Smoke--> Petite Silk Lame SP49
Mill Hill 00252--> Delicas DB172
Mill Hill 02077--> Delicas DB1764
Mill Hill 02078--> Delicas DB1576
Mill Hill 02082--> Delicas DB427
Mill Hill 13004--> Swarovski 5040 Padparadscha AB 6 mm Briolettes
Mill Hill13054--> Swarovski 5500 Rose AB 9 mm Teardrop
Mill Hill13063-->Swarovski 5328 Padparadascha AB 4 mm Bicones.

I've been working a bit on Earthdancer.  Since I was taking her off the Snaps to put letter L on, I ironed her and took a progress picture.

I'd guestimate she's about halfway done.  I've just started a gift project and as soon as it's received I'll post a pic.
