Does This Wool Roving Make Me Look Fat?

I got started on the new lessons for Mermaid Treasures.  The basting is in.  Then I got brave enough to try putting on the wool roving.  Luckily there are lots of photos to help along the way.  I wasn't sure if I was using too much or not.  So I email Amy Mitten to ask her if my mermaid was too fat.  She said she looked fine so I am good to go on to the next part.  I think the next thing I do is put the satin on.  Eek!  I'm a little afraid of that but I'm following Amy 's directions.

I worked the next cartouche (I love that word) on Needleworker's Pocketbook.  I changed some colors of floss based on how pale the other basket of flowers looked.  With just a few tiny stitches, you have to go darker than you think to have them show up.  Now, do I go back and change the first one?  Well, yes, probably parts of it.  I'd really like to finish up the top two bands today so I can go on the the landscape.

Mr. Mailman hasn't brought me anything all week.  Will he redeem himself today?
And how on earth can it be Friday again already??
