Note: Unknown to me the Crone had also picked this project up the same day. This is the only project we are both doing, and she wanted to surprise me by catching up and finishing the green portion of the tail. Eerily this project has sat untouched by us both since August.

Stitching for hours on end for the Spring Queen and not seeing any real progress or light at the end of the tunnel can be daunting. Normally I would jump to another project, but which one? With my recent completion of 2 I was left with 11 projects all in their infancy. So on a Saturday morning 2 weeks ago I awoke with the sudden urge to stitch a mermaid. Maybe some Krenic would cheer me up, but which Mermaid should I choose? Currently there are 3 started and one waiting that the Crone gave me for Christmas. So driven by something I could not explain I chose the one that was the least completed, Mediterranean Mermaid. When I picked her up I had only the green tip of her tail completed and now as I hope to finish her hair today I eagerly rushed to the cross stitch store to buy the multitude of beads it will take to complete her. I never thought my desire to have a break form the Queen would result in finishing a project!
