September Smalls SAL check-in

In addition to the boxes I stitched up and posted a few weeks ago, I also stitched and finished this Mermaid by Carriage House Samplings.  Stitched on a mystery piece of linen, with some changes made to the colors.  I didn't like the harsh black, so I used a blend of dark gray and a blue-black.  And some others I subbed out of necessity, can't remember now which ones.  Backed with some plain aqua-blue fabric and stuffed with crushed walnut shells.

 
In her bowl, a nifty blue glass thing I found at an auction for $1!  And I threw in some iridescent marbles from the Dollar Store.

Then I had my little glass mermaid pose in there as well.  More decorations for my mermaid bathroom.....
