Day Nymph

This is the one I will probably give as a Christmas gift since it is already complete. Thought I might add a few more WIP's, but just depends on how far I can get today. The Crone
Second picture more accurate on color.

Night Nymph-Mirabillia

Thought I should probably get Night Nymph and Day Nymph posted before they become a Christmas present for someone. Since Day Nymph is already framed that will probably get thrown in a Christmas White Elephant...not sure yet. The Crone

Happy Thanksgiving

Just a quick update on Lilac by Nora, I have discovered if I stitch one flower at a time this project may not become a UFO (UnFinished Object). She will go away for a while until I am finished with the Crone's Christmas gift. I am still plugging away on my Mermaids and hope to have them done by January.

Happy Thanksgiving to all! I am very grateful to have family to share my stitching with! The Maiden

IHSW Mermaid Madness

This weekend was perfect for hermitting! The weather has just turned cold and the sky was full of dark clouds, so with a cup of tea in one hand and needle in the other I worked on Mermaids of the Deep Blue by Mirabilia.

Some have asked where Mirabilia color conversions can be found. The most extensive collection I have found is on the Mirabilia Yuku bulletin board, here is a link:

Mermaids of the Deep Blue

Juls has convinced me to participate in a stitch along for Mirabilia's Mermaids of the Deep Blue (she is doing a color conversion). I had the project in my stash of WIPs (big surprise) so I thought it would be fun to do! Here is what the project looked like when I picked it up 10 days ago, only a bit of hair.

And here is my progress! I must admit I was motivated by Joysze and her amazing finish! I decided to keep the original charted colors so that the mermaids will match Atlantis perfectly.

Mother- the frog hat is adorable, loved your post! The Maiden

A little crochet

I am alive and well- I wanted to prove I haven't been a total slug, although I haven't done a whole lot of cross stitching as of late. I did manage to sneak in a baby blanket and a pretty sweet ear flap frog hat for my friends baby shower. It is much easier to drag along yarn in a bag to baseball and hockey practice and games. I miss you and love you!!!!

Venetian Opulence

I have been a little frustrated with my WIPs lately. I have over 20 going (mostly Mirabilia's) and none are any where near finishing. Venetian Opulence is visually stunning, and perhaps the closest to a finish. I just wish it was not solid for the second half! The maiden.

Mothers Arms

Mother's Arms by Mirabilia (I am sensing a pattern) also got some attention. I spent the entire day on this one while at Julie's house for a stitch in. The Maiden

Just keep swimming

Unemployment has been amazing for my crosstitch! While I am indulging during my off time, I am finding it difficult to stick to one project...

Here is my progress on Enchanted Mermaid by Mirabilia. The Maiden
