I promised my husband I wouldn't start anything new until I finished something.  Well, since I finished the BBD, I went ahead and started my color converison of Aphrodite Mermaid.
Here is the Floss Toss

And here is the start picture from last night.  This is my only Stitch Maynia start unless I finish another project.

So far, that's her hair.  Looks a bit like Marge Simpson or Hades from Disney's Hercules, I think.

Well, TTFN!


  1. Cute finish.
    Aphrodite will look great on that fabric.

  2. This is gorgeous I love the fabric!

  3. Love your finish... the Buttercup fabric is gorgeous! I love the idea of the brighter colours you chose to stitch the design :o)
    And I can't wait to see Aphrodite progress with those stunning pinks you have picked out... I was almost drooling when I saw your video yesterday!
    Hugs xx

  4. Such amazing work....while admiring the photos you posted from retreat I saw a conversion of I think the Raven Queen that looked like Malificent
    I've search for ages for something like this....if you know the person or they r willing to share please contact me at 3

  5. Sorry that was

  6. Hi! Will you be putting up your conversion? I would really love to do her in the next month or so and would like to kit her up. I saw on Facebook that you finished her!!! She looks awesome
