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.
