At last!


Thank you everyone for the wonderful support you have given me during this year's stitching. It has been a bumpy ride for me. For a while there I seriously thought about giving up my blissful creating for good & becoming a Stepford wife (read: card-carrying-tidy-house-nothing-out-of-place-mama) instead.

The good news is that the itch to stitch has returned and with it the ideal fabric choice for my Joan Elliott mermaid. My house is slowly deteriorating back to its usual 'creation inspiring' state.



I went to the craft fair here in Brisbane this week, and there it was. It's called iced blue by the vendor, but in fact it's closer to what 123stitch calls 'Miracle Mint'. It's both green and blue, if you know what I mean. It will look wonderful in my new bathroom!

Meanwhile, I'm stealing a wee bit of weekend time to do my scissor keep. I'll post some pics after the next lot of exams & assignments.

Happiness & laughter to one and all,

Bliss

Glad to hear the stitching itch is back in force. Isn't it wonderful when the perfect piece of fabric shows up. Iced blue sounds like it will be beautiful for your mermaid. Looking forward to seeing your start of her as well as the scissor keep you're working on.

Glad your exams are over at last Felicity.

I like, I like, in fact I much prefer her to the other mermaid you shown a picture of. I cannot wait to see what you have planned for her. Oh and welcome back to your bug.

I'm so glad your stitching bug is back! He seems to have left me but hopefully not for long.
