Urgh...I think my eyes are going to explode...last night I accidentally knocked over a bead caddy with the contents of about 20 packs of Mill Hill beads. Pete, Louise and I had to scrabble about on the floor sweeping them out of the carpet, and I spent last night and this morning sorting the bloody things with a pair of tweezers. I was seriously tempted to just bin the lot, but until Pete starts work I can't afford to write off that many. Photobucket - Video and Image Hosting to sorting through beads!

On a brighter note, I've progressed a little with Enchanted Mermaid -

I'm glad now I chose this fabric. I agonised for ages over which to use, because I didn't want something too overpowering as she's very bling already.

Oh I can feel your pain in having to sort out those beads Gill.

Your stitching looks great.

Ugh, I'm sorry to hear about the beads, Gill... one of my worst stitching nightmares! EM is looking fantastic though, you're such a fast stitcher. Makes me want to start her now too!
