This is my last WiP pic. I promise. Next one should be a finish. Now if only those beads I ordered would arrive...
Deprived from beading Lady Alexandra, I delved into my stash and pulled out Mermaids of the Deep Blue. Yeah, not like I have dozens of WiPs waiting eh?
This design is very special to me as it's the first Mirabilia I fell in love with. Still, I wonder why I've yet to stitch it. Perhaps it has something to do with the number of fabrics I've bought for it that just doesn't seem quite right.
Clockwise from top left:
- Polstitches - Ripples Opalescent Cashel
- Polstitches - Monsters and Mermaids Opalescent Cashel
- Picture This Plus - Splash Opalescent Belfast
- Silkweaver - Aegan Aqua Opalescent Cashel
- Picture This Plus - Splash Opalescent Cashel
Oh, don't get me wrong, each and every one of them is certainly pretty enough in their own right but somehow, just not the one for Mermaids of the Deep Blue, know what I mean? Sigh! OCD much?
Finally, I decided to go a different route. I ordered Crafty Kitten's opalescent cashel Aurora, requesting that it has minimum green than normal. It arrived on Wednesday.
Holy moly, my hunt for the perfect fabric is finally over. I'll be starting Mermaids of the Deep Blue the moment this post goes up ^.^ I have to admit though that I didn't come up with this idea solely on my own. I've seen plenty of mermaids, including Mermaids of the Deep Blue stitched on this particular hand-dyed fabric and they're all stunning!
Till next time, Happy Stitching!
