Going along swimmingly

WIPocalypse be damned, I always seem to be starting something new.  Sigh.  but at least I FINISHED this one....
The Little Mermaid
design by Ida Winckler, Danish Handcraft Guild
This was one of the little goodies I picked up at Celebration this year.  It is a kit that included Danish Flower thread, and the finished size is only about 3.5" x 5".  Very simple, but really very cute, too, and I can envision her framed and in my downstairs half-bath (if/when we ever get it refinished...).  She also coordinates nicely with the Prairie Schooler "M is for Mermaid" pattern - hmm, maybe a mermaid/sampler wall is in my future?!?

Cute little finish. Congrats. Never worked with Flower Thread.
Mermaid Sampler? What about the Chatelaine Mermaid box, THAT would look great in the bathroom right under a Mermaid sampler (insert big grin here...lol)

Decision Made

After monkeying with the shells and beads some more, I decided to take them all off... ...and I think I like it best this way.  I did add...
