"I Love This; Why Haven't I Stitched It" SAL

Over on the 123Stitch message board, one of the members started this fun little stitch-along.  The idea is to pick something you have in your stash and love, but just haven't gotten around to stitching.  Well, this little piece is something I picked up at Celebration of Needlework last year, and it has been sitting in my "to-be-started" pile on my desk ever since!  I even bought the flosses and a piece of 32-ct. linen for it, so there really was no excuse....

...so without further ado, here is White Lyon's "Mermaid Spoken Here."
The colors I'm using are not exactly the ones used in the model photo - when I bought this at Celebration, the designer had already sold out of some of them.  So we picked some that were close/made me happy, making this piece entirely mine!  And I don't think it will take me too much longer to finish.
