Blissful Mermaids

Legends of these half-human, half-fish humanoids have circulated for millennia, even as far back as 5000 BC. I love the way mermaids' tails 'sparkle like diamonds and emeralds [and] their hair flows around them like veils of silk.'

Mermaids of the Deep Blue #85

Nora Corbett
Released on August 26th, 2005.

Two daughters of the sea swim gracefully toward treasure lost.
Their tails sparkle like diamonds and emeralds.
Their hair flows around them like veils of silk.
They are real and fairytale combined to become beauties of the deep.

I have had the chart and fabric for quite a while but didn't want to start this project until I had finished other WIPs. Then last year, my son's girlfriend, Nadia, went through my stash collection and fell in love with this work. For Christmas, I gave her the pattern, fabric, beads & floss to do the project. Her fabric was much nicer than mine (& a totally different colour), so I sent away for a second piece of fabric to put with my waiting kit.

Finally today, I have started gridding. I'm so excited!

I don't usually work on more than one item at a time, but this is going to be something special. I'm going to work in with the Yahoo Mirabilia group's Wednesday SAL timeframe.

Watch for weekly updates.

Happy stitching until next time,
