Renaissance Mermaid - update #3

Still plugging away on Renaissance Mermaid! Her hair is kind of killing me, haha. And of course, the endless debate with myself about over-one skin or not... I've started shaping the places where her hair touches her skin as if I WILL do it, but I dunno.

(Yeah I do... I'll end up doing it because I always do. Why am I even pretending??)

I'll have to move the q-snap soon to work on either the rest of the hair or her tail. I'm leaning toward the tail because it's easier stitching and it feels good to make fast progress. We'll see. :3

And here's a pic of the other stuff my wife got me for my birthday!

I'm excited about the Quaker Mermaid chart because I'm suddenly really fond of quaker style designs, and of course, mermaids! And the Just Nan charts are really cute. I'm going to have to sit down and work on some of my JNs soon, because I have a bunch now and I've only stitched a couple. They're so pretty but I get intimidated by all the color changes, haha.

I was also fortunate enough to get some cash from my in-laws, so I used that to do a bit of online shopping, but I'll show those things when they arrive. :)


And one final plug for my fabric sale. I'm going to start moving these to FB groups or ebay later on this week, so if you're interested, please take a look before they disappear! :)


  1. Ooh what a great birthday haul! Quaker Mermaids is perfect for you and I love the little rosebud bird.

  2. The Mira is looking lovely but that's a lot of over one skin!
    Love the Quaker Mermaid and the JN stash too.

  3. The mermaid is looking amazing! Love your birthday stash, such pretty designs.

  4. Oh wow, your mermaid looks fantastic! Yes, over one for skin, I wish I had done that on the one I'm working on.
    Lovely gifts you received, Happy Belated! One of these days I'd like to get the Quaker Mermaid, but I have plenty to keep me busy.


I love comments! If you have a blog, leave me a link so I can follow you. :)
