Still Sweating

I don't know where you all live, dear readers, but the weather here in the Northeast US has been ridiculously steamy.  My Little started school yesterday, and came home a sweaty, sticky mess (her school does not have air conditioning).  So it seems only appropriate that, in an attempt to think about cooler climes, I started stitching Heartstring Samplery's "M is for Mermaid" pattern!  Here it is, along with the frame I'm planning to use when it is finished.
The frame is one that I picked up at JoAnn Fabric, on sale a couple months back.  I'm stitching on 40-ct. so it will fit (the design is charted to be 6" on 32-ct., but the frame opening is only 5").  I also didn't have all the flosses called for, so I've subbed in some DMC and some alternate hand-dyes.

Perfect frame. It will be cute when finished.

This is going to be so sweet when finished. What a super frame you picked up!

Still hot and steamy here! I hope it cools off soon and sends the humidity packing.

Enjoy your weekend!

Yes, the weather has been a hot mess, but finally it's turning cooler! Although I could do without all the rain that's coming with it.
I love, love, the mermaid, it will be perfect for that frame! I can't wait to see it!

Too sweet! This is going to be adorable!
There was the very slightest of chills in the air here this morning! Summer is waning.

Love your planned frame finish. Looking forward to seeing the finished piece.
