Hee hee ... I'm curious. It will give me an excuse to start another one into rotation! *laugh* Just what I need, right?

I'll be stitching tomorrow night. A stitching friend is coming over and I'm hoping to make good progress on Em!

And I'm ALMOST done with Mermaid of the Pearls. The stitching is just about done and then the process of the Mammoth bead work begins. I changed things around on this one where the Mill Hill Treasures are concerned and still have one large piece to find (where the large pink heart is). I have one framed and on the wall and my goal is to have them all eventually!

oooohhh, I didn't know you had Mermaid of the Pearls in the works! Where are the pictures? Hmmmmm? *laughs* Which one do you have finished and framed and where are the pictures of that? Hmmmmmm? *laughs* You should post them in mirabiliastitch.

Let me know if you can't find beads, because that shop I mentioned - Lasting Impressions, she has almost all of them and if not, she'll order it for me. I could always send it to you. They're only a dollar something, just give me the number so I get the right one. I looked all over the internet for most of the beads and couldn't find too many of them all in one place, but she had them, so I bought up pretty much all that I needed (some she was out of and has ordered for me).

Yep, Mermaid of the Pearls is almost done. I actually ended up working on her a bit tonight instead of Em for some unknown reason. I'll take some pictures tomorrow when the suns out and post them. I hadn't thought about doing that! Duh! *laugh*

I have Deepest Love framed and on the wall! While it's not really my style, I had her framed very much like the it looks on the chart photo. Fancy gold frame type thing. I love seeing her on the wall!

I'll post some pics tomorrow. I'm just about beat ... just about. ;)

And thanks for the offer to help out in the bead department. I may take you up on it. I actually did a weird little thing for Mermaid of the Pearls. I bought real pearls at my LNS before we moved here (about .30 a shot, so not TOO bad) and I'm going to use clusters of those instead of the large off-white treasures. We'll see how it goes. I'm still using the Mill Hill beads for all the other stuff, it's just the big treasures that I'm changing up. Have you looked at the beadwork on this one? Holy moly, the water along is insane! *laugh* She is very pretty though.
