Silver Moon Tea and I have a love hate relationship. I just keep coming back.
I am over the moon with my progress, but every time I take a break and return to this project my tension is off. It is driving me to madness, so I am forcing myself to work on nothing but this project until it is complete. The Maiden.

Round Robbin Round 1 Complete: Maiden

I am so excited I could scream, round one of The Shores of Hawk Run Hallow is complete!!! All that fill in was a nightmare (and the reason I originally stopped working on this project), but now it is done and I can officially move on to something else!

I especially like that I finished this round a whole month early!
Stitched on 32ct ODL Spice.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving, as for us the Maiden, Mother and the Crone were reunited!

IHSW and Zombies!

This is my new start, and she kind of scares me (remember I am a banecrophobic, fear of the walking dead)!

How could I resist? Above is the original fabric, 28ct (I had planned to tent stitch this one)...

Here is the fabric I changed to, 16ct Aida (GASP). Full crosses. I am removing the background, I just can't bring myself to cover this fabric!  

My progress has been quite shocking, 2400 stitches in 3 days! This is the top left of the bee hive.

Mermaid Revealed

I can finally post my finish of Mediterranean Mermaid, as she will find her way to her new owner tomorrow!

Mermaid Mirabilia
This is a gift/commission for the ever talented Sara Lamp, who's creative choices in framing my pieces I trust more than my own.

I absolutely hated the hair, I mean loathed it with all that blue. So after days of stewing and not stitching, I pulled and frogged and added gold kreinik. Sometimes, a girl just needs kreinik. Now her hair is one of my favorite elements!

A note on conversions: I changed the Kreinik comprising her crown to 201C and the beads in her hair only to Mill Hill 02011.

I had to include this photo, the flash made me feel like I had snapped her in motion!
