Yes I know...another new start. Bite me...Photobucket



This little mermaid has an odd little face, but I adore her anime hair colours! She shouldn't take too long to stitch up, except that *Australia* appears to be out of stock of the 226 & 229 Waterlilies! Photobucket Can you believe that??! Nowhere I've checked has them in stock! Anyway, I'm stitching her on a nice piece of Stitches & Spice 'Ocean Waves' opalescent Cashel which is more vibrant in real life than it looks in the photo...as usual. I'm going to stick with her for a while because I'm having so much fun with her. Well, as much fun as you can have with half a fish...Photobucket

Gill, you are too funny! My motto is life is short! Stitch what grabs at you! I think it makes for a much happier stitcher - IMO! :)

I love this one and you are one of the first to be stitching her. I have also seen her on deep inside missy's blog (http://www.deepinsidemissy.com/)

I just purchased the chart myself. I especially love the little seahorses.

Your stitching looks great!

*faints* marry me Gill?
You like stitching, AND you like anime? LUV YOU! LOL!

You think Australia is bad for finding specialty stitching items? Try New Zealand!

I'd rather be in Australia in those moments when my lns tells me "Sorry, we don't have that" even WITH the Australian accent :P
