October Smalls SAL

I've been a busy little stitcher this month!  I finished the mermaid freebie, Cowboy Dreams, and now this for the Smalls SAL...
This is The Little Stitcher's "Mother of the Harvest" freebie, stitched on a very pale green linen with DMC flosses (since my computer is still out for repair, I only have this cell phone pic, which doesn't show the color really well).  I think I will finish it as a small pillow, with the fabric in the pic and button embellishment.

In other stitchy news, I caved and signed up for Ship's Manor's Beautiful Sea Quaker SAL - I bought Erik's threads, too.  It was a great deal, and while Quaker designs aren't always my thing, the colors in this were just lovely.  Here's my start:
And I'm envisioning it stitched to the mermaid I finished earlier this month, maybe as a banner of some kind?  Here is the mermaid along with my floss  toss.
I'm hoping it could look like she has kind of "risen" out the sea below!

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...
