Back On Track! - Emerald Mermaid Stitch-Along

Finally finished the model I was working on, as well as a few small projects, so it's time to get back to Emerald Mermaid! Anyway, I was checking the home page of one of my favorite retailers, and it looks like Mirabilia has a new mermaid design coming out. I didn't see it on her web page, but check out the preview on the home page of Paw Prints Cross Stitch. I think this one is definitely going to have to make it into my stash!

Anyway, I'll post some more progress photos of my Emerald Mermaid soon. I'm working on adding the flowers to the seaweed across the bottom, and it's so tedious because you do like five stitches of a color before having to stop and get a new color. Ugh. I keep telling myself that if I can get the flowers done, I can get to work on that tail, with it's lovely, large sections of one color. ;-)

Why don't you try narrowing down your flowers by area, and doing all of one color for all the flowers in that group, then all of the next color? You're not really rethreading your needle after 5 stitches to do every flower one at a time, are you?

Oh no, I'm doing the one color on all 7 (8?) of the flowers, then the next color on all of the flowers. It's still tedious because you have to stop and start at each flower, but it beats rethreading all the time!

That new mermaid is GORGEOUS! Good grief! I can't wait to get my hands on that one!!! Wow!

I need to get back into gear on Em too.

Good luck on the flowers ... they are beastly sometimes! =)

That's why I do them as I come to them. I'm afraid that if I leave them until last I just won't want to do them!!
