March IHSW SS Mermaid

 Here is my starting point for IHSW...
 A close up of all those lovely colors...
 And here is my progress! I am really pleased with this project so far and cannot wait until her tail is done! I have decided not to stitch the chandelier and have a surprise planned for that space, so stayed tunned! the Maiden

Killer Hat!

So.. I haven't been stitching, but I have been preparing for an upcoming Roaring 20's murder mystery dinner.  I made the headband with some hot glue and store bought feathers (and I have to say that I am glad that jewelry making is so popular these days - that piece in the front cost me about a dollar).  Then I decided that I needed a cloche hat instead, so I crocheted one, but it was too I added them together and viola!  The perfect hat for murder.

SS Mermaid

More progress on Siren and the Shipwreck, I could not get a good picture, in person she just leaps off the fabric...

I am supposed to rotate to Roses of Provence this week as part of a SAL with Juls, but I am not sure I am going to be able to put her down! The Maiden

Siren and the Salvage

 I have absolutely no self control, and as a consequence I have started the Siren and the Shipwreck by Mirabilia! After the weekend, where I stitched at Juls and watched The Walking Dead, I have finished the hair.   
The fabric I chose is the crystal version of my zombie fabric, so naturally I had some reservations about sticking a mermaid on it, but... I decided this particular mermaid was in fact salvaging human artifacts after the zombie apocalypse. Perfect!
