3 Mermaids

Hi Stitchy friends.

Thank you for all your comments. You are all so nice to take the time out of your day to do them, so a big thanks.

This week I was in a mermaid mood, so why not stitch on 3! 

Number one was my mini pirate page 9 

Here is before on page 9

And now. I think I did a lot on her. Mostly background and more arm.

Number two was Treasures of the deep sal the March mermaid.

Before I show you...

I was thinking about beading as I go, or as I feel I can, there's so much beading in this one.
So I looked at my bead pack that I also got.
The chart calls for seed beads and I got petite seed beads, so very small ones. I've also heard that you don't get the right number of gold. 
For me I don't like the type of gold next to the 002 kreinik. You know there's a lot of different golds. 
So my idea is this I will use the bead pack on the mermaids unless when I do bead they are to small, but I think it might still work and for the border use mill hill seed beads 00557 a better gold next to the kreinik. The mermaids also have gold in them so it will stand out more with the two different golds. We will see how it goes.

Here is a picture of the Sal that's out so far so you know what it's going to look like sorry it small.

Here is before

And the March mermaid without beads for now.

I loved stitching on this Sal and want to get back to it next week.

Number three was a new start. Princess Mermaids by Soda Stitch

I'm stitching two mermaids per fabric but all four are going to be on 16 count Aida bubbles - blue by sew it all. I wanted something fun. I hope you can see the bubbles in the photo.

This week I want to finish this mermaid and then move back to my Sal. After that we will see.
That's it for me, I hope you all had a great stitchy week and a good one this week. Post again next Monday. Happy Stitching!!!


  1. Great progress last week. The mermaids are so cute! :)

  2. I have to admit to often changing things with beads, I sometimes change a colour and do not always follow the pattern as to placement. In fact, with my Mirabilia designs I have even been known to skip a couple of hundred beads and they still look beautiful. Good luck. x

  3. Your mermaids are looking fab .
    Lovely colours.

  4. Love Mermaids. You got alot done on your mini, it's coming along really well. March Mermaid is too adorable. I love the bubbles fabric and the Soda pop mermaids are going to look amazing swimming amongst all those bubbles. Great choice of fabby.
