Curly Hair

Peggy (my sister) had curly hair and I was always jealous.  Cascades of beautiful curls.  Hair that always laid the right way.  I can remember wearing curlers every night of high school.  Boy am I glad those days are gone.  But when it came to to give my mermaid hair.  I gave her lots of curls.  I'm living vicariously through my mermaid.  It wasn't easy.  I learned a new technique, ruching thread.  Anyway, I am happy with my mermaid's hair.  Next is her mirror of mica.  Then I'm all done until we get the next lesson.  I did a mirror for the clam shell pocket mermaid so this won't be hard.

I finished the pastoral scene on Needleworker's Pocketbook.  Yeah!  I think that is the most tedious part of the whole project.  So onto the next band.

It is a beautiful day here.  I ordered two more nifty kits yesterday.  Not that I need more things to stitch.  It will be fun waiting for them to arrive.
