When I went to Stitchville a couple weeks ago, I got the silk threads I needed to start filling in the Mermaid Purse. The Mermaid Purse is way easier than the Big Mermaid because you don't have to fill in all the background. I am making good progress:
I'm not sure I like the mirror reflection. She looks a little weird. I changed her expression from a frown to a smile so I am happy with that part.
There is a lot of pink hair. That is also a bit weird. But maybe it is the norm for mermaids.
I have to order the purse frame from Lacis.
I actually have one more Sharon Cohen pattern that I want to stitch. It is called Off With Her Head. It is a blackwork piece from an Alice in Wonderland illustration. I got the recommended thread for that when I was at Stitchville.
I saw it recently on ebay for a hundred dollars! Crazy!
I went walking this morning at the park. It was so nice and 68 degrees. Then I went to the Farmer's Market. We are still waiting for the market to have red delicious apples. Maybe next week. I got some Mackintosh apples to make a pie.
