My First Mermaid

First things first, My Memories Suite Giveaway winner
I'll be sending you the code to download your free My Memories Suite software shortly. Thank you for entering.
Once again, I've been busy round robin stitching. In this instance, it's Leslie's Mirabilia Mermaids RR. Here's the square seashell I contributed.
Design: Shimmering Mermaid
Designer: Mirabilia
Fabric: 32 count Silkweaver Redyed Opalescent Belfast
Fibers: DMC & Kreinik Metallic
Embelishment: Mill Hill Beads
That's right, Leslie redyed the Silkweaver fabric that she received as it was too fushia and purple to suit this project. Amazing result, eh?
I certainly think so. That's one yummy fabric which goes pefectly with mermaids. Love Jacqueline's Mermaid of Atlantis too.
I picked Shimmering Mermaid because I think she has one of the sweetest face Nora has ever designed. Can you believe she's the first mermaid I've ever stitched?
She has quite an amount of glitter on such a small portion. How much more would she sparkle in full? That question is tempting me to stitch her again. Must resist...
On to the next and also last RR of this round. What will I stitch? Care to guess? ^.^

Thanks so much, bb! I'm always so behind on my blog reading I just saw this today. (I always catch up though - once or twice a week! It's the reading everyday I never seem to find time for.)
Just a beautiful, beautiful project! The color of the fabric is luscious and perfect for the theme. I would have a hard time passing that one on to the next person. Just saying! lol

Veronica, your stitching is amazing! Love the pattern you picked for the RR! I was in a needlework store that had a ton of Miribilia patterns and I thought of you...I'm tempted to try one, I just love the intricate detail she puts in her designs. Thanks for visiting my blog! *Hugs*

I saw the pin cushion you made Catharine. It is amazing.

I then realised that I had not seen a post from you on my reader.

For some reason I was not a follower anymore!?!?

I have re joined so I wont miss another.

Blogger can be weird at times, this week. I have found five other blogs this has happened to.
