I have been so bad about posting…

Last year I uploaded and posted most days, and have about 400+ photos of WiP pics on photobucket….

This year I have about 50 so far!!!

Mermaid of the Pearls is progressing, if very slowly. I am up to the point where I can start to see progress, and that she is actually looking more like she should.

I have spent a portion of tonight colour coding my working copies. White is now mostly coloured in on the top half of the pattern. It does make the pattern easier to read, I think.

Most of her skin is done. Now it is filling in the sparklies around it. I pulled out my thread heaven, which I think will help immensely!

Here she is with a flash:

      Thanks! I like changing things around every so often, but am not good at my own html design, so I have to find one that lets me put up the full photos. Some of the wordpress page templates cut photos in half and do all sorts of things.

    I think she is coming along wonderfully. Sometimes the design just doesn’t speak to you & you need to take a break. I am having that problem with Frederick at the moment (doesn’t help that he is on black fabric either). But then you will come back to the design & poof, progress is made. I love her, though I do admit that she is not my favorite mermaid, she is very pretty.
