weekend mermaid, take two!

Got a LOT done in the last 36 hours or so...

Let's see how much more I can add tomorrow. Would be cool to get to the beading before the weekend is over!

another mermaid?

Finally started Mediterranean Mermaid, after months of pining for it. She's coming together very quickly, I've only worked on her for five nights (maybe 2-3 hours each?) and there's already so much done!

Let's see how much I can do in one weekend... *rubs hands together* Also, she's so SHINY, which is probably a big motivator. I like sparkly things and there's a lot of sparkle and beads going on here.

One small modification - the way she's charted, it's like she has negative boobs. HAHA NO. This is a MERMAID. (Seriously, her chest is concave!) So I rounded her out in the front a little. It's already stitched, but you really can't tell since there's no context for the boobage. :p

Oh, and I'll be changing her tail fin to grey as shown here. I love green, but it looks totally out of place on this design!

a dragonfly appears :p

Finally finished up the dragonfly block of the Garden Party series. The border for the bumblebee block is coming along as well, but I want to work on something else for a while (figures). Well, here it is!

[missing image needs to be uploaded again]

What to do now? I can...
- continue with the bumblebee block
- start Mediterranean Mermaid
- work on Titania
- work on Cirque des Cercles
- or say screw it all and play video games for the rest of the weekend XD

a finish, minus a few beads! ^^b

My mermaid is almost done! All she's missing is one color of beads, an opal color that will be scattered in the outer border. Everything else is done! Yes, I stayed up until 11:30 to finish her. :3

Soooo, I present to you:
The Belle of the Sea (Enchanting Mermaid) by Lesley Teare
from The World of Cross Stitching #152

Ahhhh, feels so good to have something (almost) done, finally! I can start something new without guilt now. *rubs hands together* Or I might get back to the garden party blocks, which I really should take a new picture of...

Or start Mediterranean Mermaid. Mmmm... *slobber*
