Emerald Mermaid

hi, this is so far what I have stitched. I'm only doing the cross stitch part right now, then I will do the backstitch and beads. I also only used one strand on the kreinik thread as I hate working with two strands of it. It's the dark green bit, photo does not show it that well. I think it still works out. 

I'm getting there as you can see.
I've been reading or playing a few new games on my iPad and not stitching much.

Just a note with the lovebirds cross stitch I did, when it's framed it will be without the photo of my bird, after a few days of thinking about it I thought it was a bit too much. I still miss him but ya. So it will be in the finished page soon.
Happy stitching!

Hi, Yes I started 2 more, so I've been stitching:

Qs April Fairy, by heaven and earth. I fell in love with her like so many did. This is page 5 I've been stitching and I love the blue's in her eye. See pic below. She is on 18 count Aida off white. This is also what she will look like when I get her 12 pages done.


And next I've also started Emerald Mermaid by Mirabilia Designs. She looks a little funny right now as she has no hair or much of a face. Hope the pic is ok. She is stitched on 16 count Aida called honeysuckle. I hope she works out with this fabric. It's what I will be working on in the next few days as she is calling me more then the fairy right now. 

Happy stitching!!
