The Singing Mermaid

has until the last week or so still continued to be my focus piece of stitching. I took a break to stitch the Halloween exchange I was in (and forgot yet again to take a photo of it before sending).
Unfortunately due to the stupid frog spending far too much time at the house my progress has not been as much as I had hoped and has indeed caused a bit of a lull in my enthusiasm to continue to only stitch on this piece. Sooooo I decided that it was time to start doing my rotation again.

The Singing Mermaid is in the number one place in the rotation. My rotation has 10 projects. I have a very short attention span so I usually just put a length of thread in each one at a time. Sometimes I might put several lengths into a project before going onto the next one. It works for me and it keeps me stitching for hours.

So today I am going to show you the updated photo of the Mermaid and as usual Millie decided she needed to get into the photo. So not only does she need to walk all over the stitching, lay on it but add some of her fibres to the piece as well.

Hmm, see you have the same problem I do! Only, I have one that has to sit in my lap while I stitch. Beautiful work.

Love the color, is must be great to have someone work with you that closely. It sure makes the color pop.

Milly says "but mum...if you put it on the couch, it's meant to be sat on, right?".

Love your progress!

Love how your Mermaid sampler is coming along - I have to admit, after doing my own rotation again after a couple of years absence, it really does help get some decent stitching done! :D Love your companion stitcher :D

Well you know she can do what ever she wants to. The sign at the front door says "Spoilt rotten cats live here".

MarchAnn, it is just lovely to be able to have a thread colour made so beautifully.

Wow! This is a beautiful design. The more you add to it the more I like it. You are coming along nicely.
