Purple seems a little wild for a mermaid's scales. But what do I know? It is very interesting to see a combination of colors that you think will never go together, blend in and look lovely.
Since I just stitched another mermaid by the same designer I checked out the colors in the Mermaid's Purse. I like how her scales look.
I tried stitching two scales and decided that the center color, a very light purple, was not going to work. It looked white. So I put in a darker purple. I think I can live with this combination.
I worked on the lower right corner just to see how the grass colors looked. (bad photo, sorry)
I have most of the bottom of the Off With Her Head bag in. My goal today is to finish off the Queen Of Hearts dress so that all I have left is the background design.
My tour is officially called the UK Casket Tour 2015. We start off in Edinburgh. I have spent too much time checking out places to see and have tea in Edinburgh. I didn't know that JK Rowling wrote the first Harry Potter book at the Elephant House cafe in Edinburgh. Cool. This will be so fun!! 12 days.
