IHSW and Market!

The owners of my LNS, Stitchers Paradise, just returned from market! Preview day at the store is always exciting, so I wanted to share my finds! First is this great embroidery kit, which I will be substituting with butterflies from Chatelaine's Butterfly Mandala ( Joyce inspired this one).

Next are these cute pin keeps, I could not decided on a color so I bought both!

A few new patterns...
And finally progress on Mediterranean Mermaid!
Even though I forgot it was IHSW (Gasp!) I did manage to squeeze in some stitching. The future owner of MM wanted dirty blonde hair for her, which has been quite the challenge!!! I only had 2 symbols to work with, so I needed a dirty and a blonde (he he).
The Maiden.


  1. Great patterns!
    And your mermaid is groing well.

  2. She's got a head now, so she can see what she is holding in her hands.
    I love your new patterns, I love to see Enter if you Dare.

    Hugs Yvon.
